FA set to make tougher rules to crackdown on 'racial abuse'

London, Jan 16(ANI): A working committee of the Football Association (FA), which launches its 150th anniversary celebrations on Wednesday, is working on a 100-point plan to crackdown cases of racial abuses in English football.

FA chairman David Bernstein said the new sanctions would be strict but also sensible and balance, refusing to reveal the exact details of the new punishments, the Daily Express reports.

The plan will outline tariffs for any players who are deemed guilty of racial abuse, which will be above the four-match bans handed out to John Terry, right, and Luis Suarez, whose suspension was then doubled after an independent panel decided he had used racial language more than once in his bust-up with Patrice Evra, the paper said.
