I'm surprised FSG haven't tried trademarking a Double Decker...after all we used a few for our CL victory tour of the City!

This was on twitter and instagram, this should be treated with the same ferocity that the Suarez / Evra incident was, which had much less evidence!


No way except if Mendy is offended and says so, otherwise, it's a non event. How can it be treated as the Suarez Evra incident?

It depends on the relationship I have, but yes, it could be if I know he would understand the banter and will not be offended.

Seems the players are happy between themselves, problem is they broadcast it on a public network, so I guess the FA have got to be seen to act, what if a member of the public posted a picture of Mendy comparing him to that ad picture? that would be seen as racism.

The problem is this opens a big hole, dependant on intent/context etc, while players are on Social media there will be problems like this.

People did see Silva's post hence why it was forwarded to the FA. The FA are also looking into a video that has surfaced about same said banter.

I see an awful lot of hypocrisy in this from Man City when you've got the likes of Sterling put on a pedestal because he's spoken out about racism in football and yet blatant racism he must witness in his dressing room all the time between Silva on Mendy, he's gone mute on? I agree the Spanish speaking players tend to use a lot of the racist banter but they must be taught about the culture over here being different and how it's frowned upon? Suarez got done over racist banter, went through a witchhunt because of it. There's not much difference in my eyes, other than more proof in this scenario. The FA should throw the book at Silva and give Man City football club a dressing down for breeding this culture.

Agree with this. But nothing will happen as itís City.
