Pep Guardiola – We should apologize for the way we treated black people

Guardiola

Pep Guardiola spoke out on the Black Lives Matter movement after Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Wednesday, saying he is “ashamed of what white people have done to black people”.

The Premier League put on a unified front against racism as they returned to football after a three-month coronavirus-enforced hiatus.




After watching his side pick up a comfortable 3-0 win over the Gunners, Guardiola explained why he is so desperate to see change occur when it comes to equality among races.

The City boss told a post-match press conference: “White people should say sorry for the way we have treated black people for 400 years.




“We should send a thousand million messages for the black people. I’m embarrassed and ashamed of what the white people have done for the black people.

“How people can think they are different? All the gestures are good and positive. Everything we can do to make it conscious, it is not acceptable.

“We have to do a lot of things for the black people which we have not done so far.”

Raheem Sterling, who launched his own anti-racism social media campaign after the mass protests taking place around the world, feels English football is “going in the right direction” when it comes to tackling this issue.



He told Sky Sports : “I see it as a massive step for the Premier League to allow something like that to happen and it shows we’re going in the right direction.

“Little by little we’re seeing change. It was natural, it was organic. We saw the teams do it in the earlier kick-off and thought it was something we had to do as well.”
