Former Man City Captain Kompany Reveals Who Are The Cause Of Racism In Football

Posted by E.L.E.X on September 05 2019 under Sports

The lack of diversity in football organisations is part of the problem in tackling racism, says former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.

Kompany made the point after Belgium compatriot Romelu Lukaku was racially abused by Cagliari fans while playing for Inter Milan.

Lukaku said the game is “going backwards” in the wake of the abuse.

“Romelu is a victim of something disgraceful not just in football, but also in society,” said Kompany.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Anderlecht manager added:

“It goes back to who is expected to make a decision on these issues, and it’s in these organisations that the problems lie.

“The real racism lies in the fact none of these institutions have representatives that can actually understand what Romelu is going through.

“You are dealing with a crowd of people and decision makers who are telling him how he should think and feel about this when you have no decision makers who are remotely in touch with what he has experienced in his life.

“That’s the real issue, if you go through the boards at Uefa or Fifa, the Italian League or the English League, there is a real lack of diversity.

“If you don’t have diversity in places of power like boardrooms then you can’t have the right decisions in terms of sanctions – it’s a simple as that.”
