Reading striker Jason Roberts has called for improved funding for Kick It Out and stronger leadership in the equality department at the Professional Footballers' Association in a bid to win the fight against racism.

The 34-year-old - one of several leading players, including Anton and Rio Ferdinand, who refused to wear Kick It Out T-shirts at the weekend - says he and a group of players have been in talks with the PFA over the past year, since high-profile racism incidents involving Luis Suarez and John Terry, and have submitted recommendations which have not yet been acted upon.

Quoted in the Daily Mail, he said: "Myself and a group of other players have been in detailed discussions with the PFA for some time. We suggested to them all along that this week could be an issue, because people didn't want to wear the T-shirt."
