Wales goalkeeper Jason Brown has played down talk of a breakaway anti-racism group as the row over racism continues to engulf football, but has admitted it could be an option if he and his fellow black players lose further faith in the authorities.

The weekend`s football was overshadowed by the number of players who opted not to sport the t-shirts provided by the anti-racism group Kick It Out, with Manchester United`s Rio Ferdinand the most high-profile to not wear the top.

In an interview with Sky Sports News he suggested he is losing trust in Kick It Out boss Lord Ouseley, while also asking why the PFA chairman Gordon Taylor has not done more. "Enough is enough. If you look at those who didn`t wear them, then there is a lack of belief (in the authorities) and everyone can see it now for what it is," Aberdeen's Brown said.
