DO YOU AGREE? Ferdinand Says Football Clubs Should Be BANNED For Racism
Football groups consisting of Chelsea and Montenegro should be banned from competitions over racist abuse, says Les Ferdinand.
The former Newcastle and England striker wishes football’s authorities to move a step similarly than Raheem Sterling’s call for nine-point deductions for incidents of racist abuse and undertake a comparable approach taken to stop hooliganism within the 1980s.
“What did they do to English teams? They banned them for 5 years,” Ferdinand instructed Sky Sports News.
“Kick them out of the competition, you’ll quickly clear up the trouble.”
England’s gamers have been subjected to monkey chants and other racist abuse all through ultimate month’s European Qualifier in Podgorica which UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin labelled as a “disaster”.
Montenegro were ultimately charged by using UEFA with racist behaviour following the game and face a partial stadium closure.
Sterling, who has sponsored a manifesto calling for exchange in how football’s government address racism and discrimination, was allegedly racially abused by means of a Chelsea supporter final December.
