UEFA promise crackdown on racism

Published Add your comment

UEFA have vowed to crack down on racism at the European Championship after they and the Dutch Football Association acknowledged Holland's black players were abused during a training session in Krakow.

Members of Bert van Marwijk's squad were allegedly subjected to monkey chants at Wisla Krakow's Miejski Stadium on Wednesday, with captain Mark van Bommel branding the incident "a real disgrace".

Having been satisfied by the Dutch FA's initial assurances the abuse was not racially-motivated, UEFA announced they had been made aware of "isolated incidents of racist chanting". European football's governing body confirmed they would consider increasing the number of stewards at open training sessions in order to eject fans if there was a repeat.
