'If It's Football, It's Vital'

PL: Racism Still An Issue

THE Premier League has today released a statement in relation to recent issues surrounding racism in football.

The issue of race in football has been made more prevalent in recent weeks with John Terry and Luis Suarez being linked to comments made on the field.

While Sepp Blatter has rather bizarrely chosen to play down the incidents in question, the Premier League has moved to back the various campaigns while admitting there are still issues.

A statement read: 'The English game has been at the forefront of tackling racist behaviour and other forms of discrimination.

'Everybody in the game in England understands any form of racism is totally unacceptable.

'There are still issues, as there are in society, so with our partners, Kick It Out, the PFA and The FA, we must remain committed and vigilant to maintaining the standards we have set and confronting any incidents that occur.

'There is no place for discrimination in football and we will continue to strive to eliminate it.'

This comes in the wake of Liverpool backing the Uruguayan Suarez after the FA charged the striker of racial abuse against Patrice Evra.
