MP calls for points deduction for racist fans

    A point deduction is one of the penalties clubs should be face if they do not taken sufficient action to combat racism and bigotry, according to a report submitted by the FA’s anti-racism taskforce.

    That is the recommendation of John Mann MP, the chairman of the group Tackling antisemitism and Islamophobia. The report raises concerns that racist behaviour or risk further erosion of the English game’s “moral authority”.

    The report was released days after we revealed how two more Jewish teams were victims of racism (inset).

    Noting that the penalty “should be implemented with immediate effect”, Mann wrote: “This has been used boldly in Europe – its lack of implementation by the FA reduces our moral authority at international levels and within the wider Fifa network.” He raised calls for a more “diverse representation of the football community” in the FA’s internal structures.
