Bernardo Fernandes on Sterling’s stance against racism

Bernardo Fernandes on Raheem Sterling’s stance against racism: “As a young black guy I am really proud of what he has been doing. In his position many players wouldn’t do it because it can attract hate if you speak out. So it can be easier to stay safe in your nice bubble…”

Bernardo Fernandes: “Many black players have suffered but people in his position don’t always want to do what he is doing because they don’t care. They know as a footballer people will always treat them nice…”

Bernardo Fernandes: “…So at the end of the day, Raheem could have stayed quiet and got on with his life while others suffered. But he chose not to. He is doing this more for other people than he is for himself and it will have a big impact.”
