Former Arsenal footballer and PFA Coach Educator Paul Davis has told ITV News that "for far too long we've had a lot of talking (about tackling racism) but not a great deal of action."
Today Serbia were fined €80,000 (£64,955) and their Under-21 team will play one match behind closed doors after racist chanting of fans at their U-21 European Championship qualifier against England.
The Football Association and the Ferdinand brothers led a wave of angry reaction tonight to UEFA's fine for Serbia.
There can little doubt over whether Serbia should and will be punished; but it is the level of punishment from UEFA that is important.
UEFA has announced it is to instigate proceedings against England and Serbia following the side's U21's match on Tuesday night.
