Racism Lies With The Football Authorities- Kompany by ogbiwa: 4:43am On Sep 06, 2019
The lack of diversity in football organisations is part of the problem in tackling racism, says former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.

The Belgian was speaking in the wake of compatriot Romelu Lukaku being racially abused by Cagliari fans while playing for Inter Milan at the weekend.

Lukaku said the abuse showed the game was "going backwards".

"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 as simple as that."

Lukaku, who moved from Manchester United to Inter in the summer, was subjected to monkey chants as he scored a penalty for his side's winner in a 2-1 victory.

A group of Inter Milan fans claim Cagliari supporters were showing Lukaku a form of "respect" and the the abuse was gamesmanship.

Kompany has said nothing but the truth. How can they tackle the issue of racism effectively, when they have never felt it.

Racism starts at the leadership of Fifa and UEFA. Can you imagine that of all talented African players, only Weah won the ballon d'or long long ago. How come one Etoo, or Drogba or even Mane at their prime could not win. I remember in 2006, it was very obvious Etoo should have won it. Best player, best scorer pichichi, won everything in club and national team. They gave it to Messi Cannavaro lipsrsealed

Edit: I meant to say Cannavaro

Well, they say na respect if they call you monkey.

Well many of us wouldn't care though. Make I dey collect £259k weekly if you like call me Satan I will still play, score and even injure my teamates. I'm sure no one would pass the ball to me again but By the time I manage get ball Na to run into my own net and score hatrick own goal as departing bonus for them. Just 1 year of play should be OK for me grin

I thought he has stepped down as Anderlecht's manager
someone here was complaining about Eto not winning world best but in 2005 when he was at his peak so was a certain Ronaldinho infact that guy was football himself but remember that in 2005 FIFA WORLD BEST Ronaldinho came first,Henry or lampard second(I think its lampard) and Eto third and Eto with Dinho are seen as blacks by the whites and have gone through a lot of racism in the game
