Raheem Sterling has reacted to Moise Kean racist abuse by Cagliari fans yesterday, slamming Bonucci for his take on the incident.
Raheem Sterling has taken to Instagram to voice his support for Juventus’ Moise Kean after the striker was racially abused in the club’s 2-0 win over Cagliari on Tuesday evening. The Manchester City star has called out Leonardo Bonucci for partially blaming the 19-year-old.
Moise Kean celebrated in front of the home fans after scoring in the 85th minute of the visitors’victory, prompting the Cagliari captain to attempt to calm the crowd as they directed racial slurs at the young attacker.
Kean’s team-mate Blaise Matuidi was left furious by the incident, while Bonucci might regret his post-match comments after saying the blame was ’50-50′ , asserting Kean should not have provoked the crowd and that they should not have reacted in the way they did.
Sterling, who is no stranger to abuse himself, posted on social media following the Juve centre-back’s comments, stating that ‘all you can do now is laugh ‘, pointing to a gross lack of understanding from the Italy international.
