Reports: Man City Caught Up In Another Racism Row

After Yaya Toure's claims that Pep Guardiola does not like African players, Premier League champions Manchester City have now reportedly been caught up in another racism row.

According to the Daily Mirror, Citizens youth scout Dean Ramsdale is under investigation after using the term "BBQ" ("big, black and quick") to describe black players.

The Englishman is understood to have used the slur during a meeting about young academy players in front of his colleagues and two football agents.

One witness told the English publication they were quite "taken aback" when they heard Ramsdale use the term, which came across as being a norm. Another was said to have made their feelings known in a letter of complaint that was sent to the club soon after the meeting.

City, who have reportedly accepted that the language is clumsy and inappropriate, have since launched their own investigation into the matter, and have sent out an apology to all parties who were part of the meeting.

The incident is understood to have taken place in early June, and since the complaint, City have been working with race relations bodies to ensure their staff gets more education on these types of matters.
