Racist Abuse Could Make Players Could Walk08 October 2002

The Mirror is reporting that Kieron Dyer, the Newcastle and England player has warned that football players could start walking off the pitch in response to racist abuse.

“If it is not cut out of football, it is going to get to the stage where some player walks off the pitch and refuses to play. Maybe it will come to that because there is only so much you can take before football goes out of the window. A manager may even pull his whole team off the park.”

The UK press seem to be going mad for any racist abuse in football stories at the moment. See the full story on their website.
