UEFA must act over 'stupid' chants

Yaya Toure has called for UEFA to act after the Manchester City midfielder was subjected to "stupid" racist chants in their 2-1 Champions League win over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.

Yaya Toure was subjected to racist chanting during Man City's win over CSKA Moscow.
Yaya Toure helped Man City earn a vital away Champions League win against CSKA Moscow.

Mooney: City made work for themselves in Moscow

Sergio Aguero bagged a brace as Manuel Pellegrini's side came from a goal behind to secure an important win in Russia, but Toure was left disappointed with the unsavoury chanting from the stands.

“For me, as captain, I was wearing an armband which said 'no to racism' and I was totally disappointed,” he said.

“I want to see UEFA do something and take some action. We have to be as strong as possible otherwise they will continue like that.

“Maybe they could ban the stadium, I don't know, for a couple of years or a couple of months.

“The club may say they have to educate the fans, but I think it's enough. Too much is too much. We have to stop it now.

“I played in Ukraine. It's not only in Eastern Europe and I have some friends who have had problems too.

“It's stupid these people. I don't know, it just happens in football. It's unbelievable. They're stupid, they're just stupid. UEFA has to take action to right it otherwise I think they will just continue.”

City manager Pellegrini confirmed he did not know about the chants during the game, but backed his player's calls for UEFA to take the appropriate action.

“I didn't know what happened,” he said. “There were some shouts against our player, it is a pity that we still have those stupid things.

“But I hope the right message can be put out for Yaya and Manchester City. I cannot answer the question about how Yaya is feeling as I haven't spoken to Yaya, so I cannot say anything about that.”

City's regular captain, Vincent, Kompany, ruled out through injury, tweeted his views on the matter.

With the prospect of a World Cup on Russian soil in five years' time, FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce called on the Russian authorities to clamp down on racism.

Speaking to Radio Five, he said: "Absolutely no shadow of doubt about it. The Russian federation have got to assure -- along with the Russian government -- that these incidents are put to bed because it's happening too often. Too much abuse has been happening in many, many parts of eastern Europe.

"Eastern Europe have problems, but we have problems in other parts of the world as well. It's got to be eradicated and the only way is to take serious action against the people who do it - don't allow them to watch football matches."

"I am absolutely appalled by events of this evening. I've always been outspoken against any form of racialism or sectarianism in sport. FIFA and UEFA are absolutely united in making sure these offences hopefully will become a thing of the past.

"I've always said fining clubs is not a solution to this problem. A lot of the clubs take every step they can -- they can't stop some of these idiots."
