International footballers' union calls on Spain to punish racist gestures
font size    

FIFPro, the international union of footballers, Tuesday called on the Spanish Football Federation to punish racism seen at a Saturday Zaragoza-Barcelona match in the Romareda Stadium, local media reported.

"The clubs and fans found guilty of racist abuse in the Spanish league should be firmly punished by the Federation, so that clubs will make sure that their fans behave," said Tony Higgins, head of FIFPro's anti-racism unit. He said that the union is exerting initiatives to promote anti-racism education.

FIFPro called for governments to ensure that anti-racist rules are really implemented.

"Football must not be a sanctuary for racist actions and we are calling on the Spanish Federation to apply the basic UEFA rules for these cases," he said.
