Reuters, NEW YORKManchester City forward Raheem Sterling, who is leading the fight against racism in soccer, on Tuesday said that he hoped to talk to officials at England’s Football Association (FA) and the Premier League about combating the menace. Last season, Sterling accused sections of the British media of fueling racism with negative portrayals of young black players. Despite that, Sterling felt there had been some encouraging signs with regard to fan behavior. “Ten years ago it was a lot, lot worse than it is now. So a lot of these people are kind of drunk by the time they get [to the stadium], but it’s getting lot better than it used to be,” he added.
