Kick It Out chairman Lord Herman Ouseley has accused the Football Association, the Premier League, Chelsea and Liverpool of a failure of "morality and leadership" over their handling of the racism incidents involving John Terry and Luis Suarez.

Lord Ouseley said Chelsea and Liverpool protected their players because they were "assets", even when they were alleged, and then proven, to have racially abused opponents.

"There is very little morality in football among the top clubs," Ouseley told The Guardian. "Leadership is so important; you have to send a powerful message that racism is completely unacceptable. But there is a moral vacuum."
