FIFA doesn’t care about racism in football – Yaya Toure
Yaya Toure has stated that world football governing body, FIFA, is not doing enough to stamp out racism.
The former Manchester City player stated that England should have walked out of the pitch during their Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria during which they were booed with racist chants.
“This is a shame, why are you playing for England? They are always talking, ‘Blah, blah, blah’, and what? Nothing changes” Toure said.
The four-time African player of the year said: “People from FIFA don’t care anyway because we’ve been talking about this, but it’s still continuing. I don’t want to say that I’m not concerned, I’m concerned”.
“They have to be serious about it, players need to make serious moves about it otherwise they (the racists) will continue to do that. They have to get the players out of the field. They respect nobody’.
