Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has doubts over whether a boycott of the 2018 World Cup would be the best way to combat racism in Russia.
Asked about a potential boycott, Wenger said: "You have to fight racism whether it is in Russia or anywhere else in the world.
"You cannot tolerate racism of any kind and you have to fight against it. How (do) you do that?
"Honestly I believe UEFA is taking action in the right way and to go as extreme as (a boycott), it's a bit early to do that because it's not proven what happened.
"I believe that Russia itself has to fight against that and of course you want everybody to be active on that."
