Managers, players and ex-pros back call for racism fines to pay for anti-racism campaigning.
Names from across English football have endorsed calls from Show Racism The Red Card (SRtRC) for FA fines in racist cases to be given to anti-racism campaigns.
SRtRC has called for all fines in cases of racist abuse, for example the recent cases of John Terry and Luis Suarez, to be split 50-50 between its campaign and Kick It Out.**
Those who have already backed the call include former-England manager Graham Taylor, Robbie Keane, former-England defender Sol Campbell, former-Sunderland player Kevin Ball, former-England and Liverpool legend John Barnes, former-Newcastle forward David Kelly and former-full back John Beresford.
