Yaya Toure: “FIFA ‘don’t care’ about racism in football.”
Yaya Toure gave his opinion that FIFA is not doing enough to rid off racism in football, and feels that England should have walked out ofthe pitch when faced with of monkey chants during their Euro 2020 qualifier in Bulgaria.
The Ex-Manchester City made the comments after Qingdao Huanghai clinched promotion to the Chinese Super League at the weekend.
England’s 6- 0 victory in Sofia earlier this month was met by racist chants and Nazi salutes from a section of Bulgarian fans.
The game had to be halted twice during the first half, but England players insisted on completing the match instead of walking off the pitch.
“This is a shame, why are you playing for England?” Toure who has been outspoken on football’s racism problem lately said of the decision.
“They are always talking, ‘ Blah , blah , blah ’, and what ? Nothing changes .”
The four-time African player of the year said; “People from FIFA don’ t care anyway because we ’ve been talking about this, but it’s still continuing.”
“I don’t want to say that I’m not concerned, I’m concerned,” said the 36year old Ex-Ivory Coast international.
