The Board of Deputies of British Jews welcomes the decision to charge Wigan FC owner Dave Whelan over comments he made last week.

Vice President Jonathan Arkush said: “We commend the FA for acting quickly and decisively, sending out a message to players and supporters that racist and divisive language of the kind that Whelan has used will not be tolerated either on or off the pitch. We will be watching the result closely.”
