Barcelona striker Samuel Eto´o believes changes need to be made in football - and society in general - in order to wipe out racist abuse.

The Cameroon international, who almost walked off the pitch at Real Zaragoza in February last year due to racist chants, claims continued abuse has made him determined to act by drawing both fans and his fellow players into taking a hard line on the issue.

For that reason, he, along with Patrick Vieira, has backed´s anti-racism campaign, which has launched a survey to encourage supporters to make their opinions known, and he told Feel Football: "If we experience this in football it means our society is rotten and that means we´re in a dangerous situation."
