City to lodge formal complaint

24 October 2013, 19:58

London - Manchester City were on Thursday expected to lodge an official complaint to UEFA over racist incidents during their Champions League match at CSKA Moscow the previous night.

City midfielder Yaya Toure said he was the victim of racist abuse during his club's 2-1 win, and urged UEFA to take decisive action to penalise racist abuse after incidents after he appealed in vain during the game to Romanian referee Ovidiu Hategan.

"I'm not just disappointed, I'm furious," Toure said.

"I'm very, very disappointed about what those fans have done.

"I think UEFA has to take action because players with the same colour of skin will always be in the same position.

"For me, as captain, I was wearing an armband which said 'no to racism' and I was totally disappointed.

"I told the referee.

"It was unbelievable and very sad."

Kick it Out, the anti-racist campaign, said Hategan should be banned for not taking action himself.

"The referee should not be refereeing again," chairman Lord Ouseley told BBC Radio 5 live.

"He failed to do his duty last night and that is a clear issue that UEFA should be dealing with.
