Manchester City’s star player Raheem Sterling has faced his unfortunate fair share of racism in football. He has been racially abused whilst playing for City and England but the winger has showed great mental character to keep performing week in week out. The good news for him and football in general is that a fan who racially abused him has been arrested.
Ian Baldry, who claims to be a ‘massive MCFC fan’, has been charged with racially aggravated disorder after he allegedly swore at the footballer last year, the Sun reports.
His friend, 57-year-old James McConnell, has also been charged of racially abusing Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings, 26, and a steward at another match.
Their season tickets have been suspended and a court date with the magistrate has been set for them on September 26th.
