The Chelsea fan accused of racially abusing Raheem Sterling

The Chelsea fan accused of calling Raheem Sterling a 'f***ing black c***' has been unmasked today and said: 'I want to apologise unreservedly to Raheem. I’m deeply ashamed by my behaviour'.

Colin Wing, 60, was caught on camera screaming insults at the Manchester City player in a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge on Saturday - but he denies the abuse was racist.

Mr Wing, from Beckenham, south-east London, says that he has lost his job and his season ticket at Chelsea, after 50 years watching the club, adding: 'Everybody’s got what they wanted'.

The married father-of-two, who lives in a £500,000 house and is believed to be a former BT manager, insists that he called Mr Sterling a 'Manc c***' not a 'black c***', although the England star is understood to have told police he heard racist language. 

Mr Wing said: ‘I’m deeply ashamed by my own behaviour and I feel really bad. But I didn’t call him a black c***, I called him a Manc c***.

‘I’ve been going to Chelsea for 50 years now and, because of where I sit, I’m picked up on the camera most weeks. If I had a history of saying this sort of thing I would’ve been caught by now'.

The football fanatic, whose Facebook account is full of references to Chelsea, is also active on Twitter where his biography says: 'If you learn from your mistakes, why am I so stupid?'
