Wenger warns against breakaway union

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels it would be "bad" to split football's battle against racism with the formation of a breakaway black players' union.

Wales and Aberdeen keeper Jason Brown claimed black players might reluctantly be driven towards setting up a breakaway anti-racism group because they feel not enough is being done.

But the Arsenal manager said: "I think any split is bad. If there is no racism, if you want to fight against racism, you should not create any federation on a difference that you want to fight against. I personally can't see the logic in that."
