The city of Manchester is covered with sadness after the death of their centre back Jeremy Whitney who killed himself after being denied a chance to play for Manchester city academy.

Jeremy is a Malawian youth team player who played as a centre back for the under 13 Manchester city academy.

Jeremy joined the city’s Elite squad at U13 level in 2016 and played for the team for quite a good time.

He has been a resident of United Kingdom and he was reportedly found dead in his apartment after being sent away from the academy.

Reports indicated that Jeremy had been sent away from the academy with no clear reasons, but some natives relied the issue on racism that Jeremy was a black African player and due to the high levels of racism in the board. It’s alleged that the board never shown any interest in Jeremy ever since his arrival at the club back then in 2016.

Its now 6 months since Jeremy killed himself and today they decided to pay tributes in order to honor the good time Jeremy spent with the club.

May the soul of the dead rest in eternal peace

The Manchester city board went ahead to show their condolences after a tweet they posted on twitter.

We send our deepest condolences to his friends and family. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.”

Current city players Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte responded to the club’s tweet with the French defender Laporte saying that they made the biggest loss of such a talent.
