Stay Home! Unless You Want to Return in a Coffin
Reply to Sol Campbell warns fans to stay away from Euro 2012
Mr Campbell said he believes Uefa should not have chosen the countries as hosts of such a prestigious event in the first place.
“I think that they were wrong, because what they should say is that ‘if you want this tournament, you sort your problems out. Until we see a massive improvement… you do not deserve these prestigious tournaments in your country.'”
In a statement, Uefa said: “Uefa Euro 2012 brings the spotlight on the host countries and clearly creates an opportunity to address and confront such societal issues.
“Uefa’s ‘zero tolerance’ approach to racism is still valid both on and off the pitch and ultimately the referee has the power to stop or abandon a match should racist incidents occur.”
Uefa said it was working with both Poland and Ukraine to ensure the safety of travelling teams and their fans.
