Kick It Out has been urged to sever its funding ties with the Football Association in order to mount a more credible fight against discrimination within football.

The suggestion has come from Manchester United non-executive director Michael Edelson, who also believed United defender Rio Ferdinand could be key to helping the campaign group raise its profile and garner more funding.

There has been massive scrutiny on Kick it Out over the past week after Reading's Jason Roberts announced his intention not to wear one of the organisation's T-shirts ahead of last weekend's matches, a stance he will continue this coming weekend. "Kick it Out is a genuine charity," said Edelson.
