'Harder punishment' is needed - Sterling on racism in soccer

SHOWS: NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (MAY 21, 2019) (WALL STREET JOURNAL'S FUTURE OF EVERYTHING FESTIVAL - MUST COURTESY) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY FORWARD, RAHEEM STERLING, SAYING: "After the situation that I had at Chelsea, they came to me with an idea.

But I don't agree with the idea; it was a Premier League, I mean a social media blackout.

And I just said to them, 'I simply don't agree with what what you want to put out.

It's a social media post, it's going to happen for one day.

And by two days time, it's all forgotten about.'

Also you know, to kick it out, do a lot in in England, as well.

A few times, they get us wear a t-shirt, yeah, but again it's not enough.

You know, there needs to be harder punishment, and I think the harder punishments need to be, teams getting deducted, teams getting kicked out because this is when people start taking it serious." STORY: Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling said the only way racism will be overcome in sports is if serious penalties are handed out to the associated clubs.

Sterling made the comments during the Wall Street Journal's Future of Everything Festival in New York on Tuesday (May 21).

City forward Sterling has been a key member of the City team which successfully defended their Premier League title on Sunday (May 19) and has also been a prominent voice in the campaigns against racism in the game.

Clubs should be slapped with automatic nine-point deductions and ordered to play three games behind closed doors if their supporters indulge in racist behaviour, Sterling emphasised during the summit.

Sterling was awarded The Integrity and Impact Award at this year's BT Sport Industry Awards for speaking out on a range of social issues, including racism.

He was recognised for his fight against racism in the sport and for using his platform to call for more action to be taken.

He had said this month that more players needed to speak out when they suffered racism to eradicate it from the game.
