"Martin Luther King"

20.01.2018 01:00 - Leader

In the game that comes all Premier League players will fight with black armbands. In each court, instead of a minute's silence, an extended applause will be heard, as a tribute to Sirill Rejis, who suddenly left life at the age of 59. Typically, the League clubs decide separately whether to honor one's memory. However, the Association of Professional Football Players called on all groups to pay collective tribute and they accepted it, recognizing the impact of the International Forces career on all those oppressed, who saw football's career as a utopia. Regis was there for them. She was bananas and the cries of the apes. He indicated to the coaches that the choice of the 11th depends on the football ability and not the color of the skin.

Born in Maripasula, French Guiana, Regis emigrated to England at the age of 5. In 1976, West Brom found him playing at a semi-professional level, working at the same time as an electrician. He immediately won the scouts and a brilliant career in the Midland began, although the managers were not convinced. Rowney Allen, the archbishop, came to the point of offering money from his pocket to take him to Bagis. The only great title of his career was the 1987 Coventry Cup, but Regis, as those who lived him, was one of the players who made you go to the field even if your team did not play. He was just the third black who was wearing the England England jersey after Vince Anderson and Lory Cannigham. A black center was a rare species in English football, with several coaches of that time tend to use them more in extreme situations.

The stereotype of the good athlete, but not the soccer player, prevailed. But Rexis was a dynamite. Fast, terribly loud, gallows. An imposing presence that was not hidden in the difficult. Richard Williams likens him to the Guardian as "a Zairins in the central positions of the court, or a predecessor of George Wye".
Alan Hansen of Liverpool said it was impossible not just to cut him off but to fool him because of his physical strength. With Lory Cannigham and Brenton Batson, they made "Three Degrees" in West Brom, as coach Ron Atkinson called them. It was the first time a team in the big England category "scooped up" with three black footballers. Maybe it sounds strange nowadays, but at that time it was something like a mini-revolution, at a time when the National Front was on top of it, and racism on the stadiums dominated. The stories are countless. Regis had heard White Hart Lane begging him with a slogan asking "who's on the tree" and flying bananas. The songs that called him "Negro" and accompanied by cries of monkeys were everyday in other stadiums, such as Chelsea and Milwaukee. Once they sent him a threatening message made from newspaper letters, warning him not to step on his foot in Wembley. Inside the envelope there was also a sphere, which he kept forever.

The three black players became a book in 2014, with a subtitle: "The men who changed forever English football," while Regic in 2008 was knighted. In 2012 it was decided to be honored with a statue in West Bromwich, which has been delayed due to funding. However, the above figures are indicative of the effect they had. Ian Wright had likened the black aggressor and the others as "Martin Luther King" for how they managed to respond to racist attacks, such as the American pacifist priest. "Learning to direct anger and use it as an incentive. Think, how can I hurt them? I'll do it with my ability on the court, "Retzs remembered. Wright admitted that he could never have done it. It would have erupted, with or without giving up, or mitigating the trenches. The attitude that held his model was conditional on a profoundly internal struggle, unlimited patience and terrifying forces.

Andy Cole called Reggie: "hero, pioneer, the man who was behind the cause that made me play football." Mark Bright, who is now making a career at the BBC, said: "It was an inspiration to me and many players of my time. He showed the way for every black footballer who followed him. " in addition to West Brom and Coventry, the dynamic striker played in Aston Villa, Wolves and Wycombe, and ended his career in Chester. The hard Midland became perhaps a bit more symbol than the rest of the Island.

Liam Rossenor struggles from 2015 with Brighton's shirt. He grew up in a football environment, as his father, Lirio, played in several London teams in the 80's. He knew very well what it was like to be black and try to write your own career. He also first understood the contribution of Regis. After his death, he wrote text to the Guardian saying good-bye to him. "You see, though you were only six years older than you, you were my father's hero. You were the man on whom he supported his game by watching not only your world class, your extraordinary aggressive game and your goals with West Brom when you were a teenager, but also the style, determination and self-denial to succeed at the incredible level he did so in the cruel, inhuman treatment you received for the perceived "crime" of your skin color.

My father admits that the pain of wretched racism has made him think twice about the choice he made in his career, but it has been a point of reference and an example. This has helped him to convince himself that you can become a successful black footballer in the racist climate of the 70s and 80s in our country, "he says.
Regis was not an example just for children like Lees Ferdinand or Ian Wright, who saw him at the end of the match in the Match of the Day to flatten the opposing defenses and bloom with pride. Like Jimmy Hendrix and other emblematic blacks became a model for a whole generation. A footballer who was one of the amateurs in the big category, although the more he looked at him with half an eye. A time that did not fall with anything, made several racists applaud him uneasily as he wore the colors of their team and withstood the blows to open the way for those who followed. He had a dream and "left" having heard thousands of "thank you", colleagues and no ...
