THE RACISM BATTLE IS FAR FROM WON


Kevin Prince Boateng a recent victim of racist chants in Italy sporting an anti racism campaign


A lot has been done in recent times to eradicate racism from football but the recent decision of UEFA regarding the Serbia V England under 21 game along with the recent incident in Italy where Kevin Prince Boateng had to walk off the pitch in protest during an A C Milan Game is very disturbing. The fact that racism was not even mentioned in UEFA’s rul- ing says it all. UEFA fined Ser- bia for “improper conduct” and racism was not even mentioned when it was clear that there were monkey chants in the sta- dium. Michel Platini used to be a good footballer but I feel he has made a serious faux pas as president of UEFA. For once I am glad that FIFA Presi- dent Sepp Blatter has said he


would have a word with him and get the decision reviewed. Racism has no place in our society and should not be condoned in any form or shape! Until football authorities start to ban clubs, players and deduct points from clubs whose fans are racist, racism campaigns would just be what they are i.e. a façade and eye service! My suggestions are the only way it can be shown that football authorities including UEFA are serious about eradicating racism from football!
