Gary Neville has responded to what David Cameron has said regarding racism in football. Cameron has been asked by Gary Neville to concentrate on his own job.
Cameron had said that the FA should do more to end racism in football. The Telegraph had said that the Football Association and other bodies should take tougher measures against those who are found guilty of racism.
However, the Sky Sports pundit and England coach Gary Neville is not very happy with the Prime Minister’s comments.
Gary Neville, who has been part Red Devils , wrote on Twitter: “Find it difficult to take from a PM that is using football for publicity to fight a societal problem. Do your job!!!
“My point on first tweet is the FA treat racism more seriously than the courts. Politicians stay out of the game. Concentrate on your job!” This was his second tweet.
Racism in football keeps taking new turns occasionally which is very sad as it is such a beautiful game. During the controversial Chelsea vs. Manchester United match, the referee Mark Clattenburg was accused of using ‘inappropriate language’ with Obi Mikel. In the Capital One Cup, one of Chelsea’s fans appeared to be making a monkey gesture at Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck.
Though this is unfortunate, Neville has made a point here. Politics and football are two different things and should be kept as far away as possible.
