Statement on the decision by the FA to charge Nicolas Anelka with aggravated misconduct
by The Board posted in Defence



 

 We note that the FA has decided to charge Nicolas Anelka with aggravated misconduct under E Rule 3[2] and this is clearly the right decision.

 

We support the FA in treating this incident seriously and we look to them to follow through with equal determination.

 

The Board believes that any behaviour on or off the pitch with racist connotations should be addressed with zero tolerance and should be kicked out by the football authorities.
