Taylor unhappy with 'misguided' protest

Players' chief Gordon Taylor feels the protests against Kick It Out are "misguided" but acknowledges questions need to be asked about the way the anti-racism campaign is being presented with so many PFA members clearly unhappy.

Numerous players decided not to wear t-shirts in support of Kick It Out during this weekend's Barclays Premier League matches, including Ferdinand brothers Rio and Anton and Reading striker Jason Roberts.

Asked for his reaction to the issue, Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) chief executive Taylor, whose union are one of the bodies which part-funds Kick It Out, told TalkSPORT: "I feel to some extent it's misguided and I feel it's quite disrespectful of people like Herman Ouseley, who has spent a lifetime fighting racism, also on the trustees we have people such as Paul Elliott and Garth Crooks."
