The former Collingwood player who sparked a review into racism at the club says management are responsible for addressing the finding, not the players.

The comment comes following an apology letter penned by 150 of the club’s current players and has been endorsed by about 120 staff.

In the letter, players say they feel responsible for these injustices by not speaking up.

Former player Heritier Lumumba spoke up about racism at Collingwood eight years ago leading to the ‘Do Better Report’ which was leaked last week and found the club was guilty of systemic racism.

He says he was bewildered that current players issued the apology letter.
