Only THREE Premier League clubs have agreed to work with authorities to help players deal with online racial abuse. Man City is one of them.
Only three Premier League teams have said that they are willing to work with authorities to assist players in coping with online racial abuse: Manchester City, Brighton, and Norwich.
Chief Con Mark Roberts, as the football lead for the National Police Chief Council, wrote to all 92 league clubs across the four divisions in the summer.
He was, however, dissatisfied with the degree of devotion displayed, notably the lack of interest from the upper echelon.
The only three Premier League clubs who have said that they will cooperate with authorities are City, the Seagulls, and the Canaries.
There has been a spike in online hate since Euro 2020, and clubs have declared that they would take a firm stance to prevent it.
Roberts continued, “We hear all the mantras, we hear all the commitment.” However, more than words are required when it comes to making genuine steps to help players and teams.
“So far, just 49 teams have replied favorably, and only eight clubs have assisted us in getting the cops, PFA, and Kick It Out in to talk to the players.”
Roberts advised teams to offer more support to players who wish to take action when they are bullied online in his letter.
He also emphasized that British cops were completely committed to finding and apprehending offenders.
“I think this is one of those occasions where everyone claims they’re dedicated and want to handle it,” he told Brinkwire.
“But then we give chances and nothing occurs,” says the narrator. That’s a pretty low response rate, and the numbers, in my opinion, speak for themselves.” ⚽ Visit our Football news live blog for the latest up-to-date rumors, rumors, and accomplished transactions.
