old white guy says something stupid about race

Wigan chairman says players are 'out of order' to complain about race




The Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has said players are "out of order" to complain about being referred to by their race.

Whelan, responding to allegations against John Terry, which the England captain denies, told LBC the issue of racism in football was overblown, and that players "should just get on with it".

He said: "If a white man insults a black man that's big, big news. If a black man insults a white man that's nothing, and it's expected.

"I think we should forget colour and … you know, it doesn't bother anybody. Sometimes a footballer, when they're playing at such a level, with the stress there is … if they call somebody white, if they call somebody black, you've just got to get on with it.

"You know, I think the players who come and complain, sometimes they are a little bit out of order.

"The game is a game, the game is a football game, whether you're white, black, pink, red, it doesn't matter. We're all equal and we all play football and we should get on with it."
