He shot over as Baggies supervisor following this dismissal of Alan Pardew in April. He was appointed on a permanent basis although he couldn’t rescue the team from relegation.
Moore accepts progress has been made in the struggle against racism but believes’incidents ‘,” like the one on Saturday, have gone unchecked.
He also backed Sterling for highlighting disagreements at the way the media coped with two stories about City teammates Phil Foden and Tosin Adarabioyo buying houses. While Adarabioyo, who is black, was maybe not was portrayed favorably.
Moore said:”In regard to the perspectives on the players he named, the way Raheem explained himself was spot on. He has a point.
“Everybody, the governing bodies, the clubs, the press – we have to get clear, open messages available and educate people.
“These isolated events have gone far too extensive. We should not condone what’s happening from the stands of our clubs.
“We all saw what happened on Saturday. If supporters hear matters like this now, they’ll point out the culprits, let’s have them away from our beautiful game, as it’s being damaged.”

Moore is passionate about fighting racism, to the extent he has switched off rap music in the West Brom dressingroom which contains words he views as offensive, even on the grounds when one person within earshot is angry about it, then it cannot be allowed.
The drama is based around the experiences of three West Brom players that were black: Laurie Cunningham, Brendon Batson and Cyrille Regis.
Moore said:”It’ll be interesting for me to watch those kids play a powerful drama with.
“We’re talking 40 years . Just how much have we moved on from this moment? Everyone thought we’d managed to move on. But when incidents like this come around, it’s one that’s been seen by millions in a high flat game, it’s worrying.”
