Well according to Sterling it’s just two mates having a laugh. So the face of anti-racism has spoken. I wonder if he’d come to the same conclusion if they weren’t team mates? One rule for one and one for another.

'City haven't done enough as a club'

In response to Guardiola's latest comments, former Everton striker Victor Anichebe told Sky Sports: "I don't think he's handled this well. You can't just keep telling us that it's a joke between friends.

"It shouldn't be a joke in the first place. You're not supposed to post this in public. Once you do that, it makes others feel they have the right to make the same jokes.

"It's just not right what he's saying, and I don't feel they've done enough as a club to really address it".

Yeah, his attitude stinks abit being team mates, its a shame, as he's raised some pretty good points in the past about journalism on race.

Don't think it's the same, context is important. One mate having a banter on the other is not the same as somebody racially abusing somebody else, the only issue is that it was done on social media therefore went public.

Of course context matters. If it doesn’t people can use that argument against using that language. “I’m not racist I was just having a laugh”

If we truly want to kick it out and Sterling cares as much as he’d have us believe, ALL kinds of this language, visuals or whatever it be needs to stop, ‘banter’ or not.

Can't see any issue as long as Mendy doesn't feel offended, the only issue is that it went public. I am sure he will or has been reprimanded, but it cannot and will not be the same as Suarez who did it to offend/destabilise

Are you criticizing a Liverpool legend who nearly all fans think he was

unjustly treated?

No I'm not, just saying that it was not the same context
