Kick It Out statement regarding Luis Suarez
Kick It Out has released the following statement after Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was handed an eight-match ban and fined £40,000 for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra:
Lord Herman Ouseley, Chair of Kick It Out, said: “The FA has shown leadership and intent through what has clearly been a difficult and complex complaint to deal with, and invested time and expertise to ensure this outcome.
“It has demonstrated that it will not stand for discrimination, something organisations such as FIFA and UEFA should take heed of.
“Kick It Out will continue to work with clubs and players, at professional and grass roots level, offering education on what is deemed offensive and unacceptable behaviour.”
