Morgan stated social media seems to be the catalyst and the medium for most of this racist behavior that is happening …………………….and made it clear that organizers of the leagues around the world must do more to stop social media attacks.

Morgan said he was approached by the premier league to be a part of their new BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) advisory committee formed with the aim of dealing with racism in the sport.
