London, United Kingdom (4E Sports) – Kick it out Chairman Lord Herman Ouseley blasted the English Premier League for their failure to make necessary measures following racially-charged incidents involving Luis Suarez and John Terry, a major sports outlet reported Tuesday.
Ouseley said there’s a ‘little morality’ right now in football among top-flight ball club such as Chelsea and Liverpool, who tend to protect their players despite firing racial slurs against other opponents.
The Kick it out chairman added that English Premier League management and its officials are acting ‘soft’ over the issue.
“Leadership is so important; you have to send a powerful message that racism is completely unacceptable. But there is a moral vacuum,” he told ESPN.
Chelsea’s Terry was slapped with four-game suspension for racially assailing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand while Suarez will serve an eight-game ban for calling Manchester United defender Patrice Evra a ‘negrito.’
