Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has come out to react to the racism suffered by Richarlison vs Tunisia. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he is not saying football can change or cure racism all over the world, but he hopes people can decide to do things the future generation can emulate.
Rio added that racism in football is at a point of madness and it sends awful messages to young viewers.
His words, “I’m not saying football can change or cure racism because I would be an idiot to think that,”
“But when you’ve got your own kids waking up and saying: ‘Dad, have you seen that banana thrown on the pitch at Richarlison?’ It’s madness.”
