Taylor: Abuse could stop complaints

Published Add your comment

Players' union chief Gordon Taylor fears the recent crowd abuse suffered by Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand could deter footballers from complaining about racial discrimination.

Manchester United defender Evra was taunted by Liverpool fans last week after an independent inquiry ruled he had previously been racially abused by the Anfield club's Luis Suarez.

And Taylor, chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association, said: "The big thing is with the likes of Patrice Evra - he has become a victim because he has made a complaint."
