UEFA president wants total war against racism

Intro

The “football family and governments” need to “wage war on the racists”, says UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin after the abuse of England players by home fans in Bulgaria.

Monday’s Euro 2020 qualifier between the sides was halted twice due to racist abuse of England players.

Ceferin said football associations cannot solve the issues alone.

“Only by working together in the name of decency and honour will we make progress,” he said.

The behaviour of Bulgaria fans, which included Nazi salutes and monkey chants, has been widely condemned by players and politicians.

The president of the Bulgarian Football Association resigned yesterday after being told to quit by the country’s prime minister.
