Fifa says it’s solved racism in football – but it’s nowhere near | Archie Bland
Football’s governing body obviously isn’t taking the problem of racial abuse seriously if it thinks its mission is complete. There’s a long way to go
Fifa has disbanded its anti-racism taskforce, because its mission has been “completely fulfilled”. This news will reverberate across football and beyond, and presumably herald a wholesale changing of the guard. Sam Allardyce will immediately stand down as England manager, having steered the national team to a World Cup. Theresa May will give up the premiership now that she’s proved, incontrovertibly, exactly what it is that Brexit means. Philosophers, having nailed down the meaning of life, will tend to their gardens.
