FOOTBALL this weekend should be about the game we love — the title race, not a player’s race.
After Liverpool star Mo Salah was targeted by Chelsea fans, boss Jurgen Klopp called on football to unite AGAIN against racism.
Too often recently the beautiful game has been scarred by idiots with Neanderthal views.
Let’s draw a line in the sand and outlaw the mindless minority.
Klopp said: “Football is the best example of how different people can work together brilliantly.
“Go in each dressing room in the world of football and you find them all sitting next to each other — nobody cares where you come from.”
That was the German’s powerful message in response to a disgusting Twitter video in which Chelsea fans sung “Salah is a bomber” about Egyptian star Mo.
The beautiful game has been scarred by numerous reports of racism on the terraces in recent weeks.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Players, managers and supporters have had enough.
Chelsea had, by last night, found three of the six louts who dragged the game into the gutter during Thursday night’s Europa League trip to Slavia Prague.
But it did not stop there. The Stamford Bridge club are investigating claims by a fan that he was the target of racism from his FELLOW SUPPORTERS on that same evening in Czech Republic.
After ten high-profile incidents in the last week, it is starting to feel like an epidemic in our game.
But the plague is being combated.
Manchester United today published a video for their All Red All Equal campaign featuring the likes of Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

And their message read: “All Red All Equal is Manchester United’s promise to champion equality, diversity and inclusion.
“To celebrate individualism. Accepting people for who they are. Embracing the differences that make the world a more exciting place.
“There is no greater goal than a more equal world.”
