Carlisle calls for Serbia ban

Published Add your comment

Professional Footballers' Association chairman Clarke Carlisle has backed calls for Serbia to receive a "significant" international ban after the "utterly deplorable" scenes in Krusevac on Tuesday night.

The Football Association has complained to UEFA after England Under-21 players were subjected to racist and physical abuse at the end of the European Championship play-off second leg.

Carlisle told BBC Radio Five: "I believe Serbia should be banned because it's a repeat offence. Banning them for a start, from any tournament, would be progress but I think if it's significant - if it's a couple of tournaments - then that would cause that nation to address the issue that has deprived them of international competition."
