Pardew - Hits Out At Monkey Chants!

01 November 2013 12:07
Alan Pardew reacted with disappointment to the punishment handed to CSKA Moscow over racist chanting directed at Manchester City's Yaya Toure.

The Russian club was charged after Toure complained he had been the target of monkey chants during City's 2-1 win on 23 October.

CSKA denied the claim but UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings and subsequently ordered their next Champions League home game to be played in a partially-closed stadium.

One end of the Khimki Arena will now be shut when Bayern Munich visit on 27 November but Premier League bosses believe such sanctions are not sufficiently severe.

Alan Pardew: "Not enough, it's just not enough.

"I think UEFA and FIFA need to have a policy that is strong, very strong.

"I think it's becoming an issue in stadiums in certain parts of Europe that needs to be addressed and the only way to address it is with incisive action.

"We've done that in this country and we've done pretty well at it. Hopefully they can put something in place that eradicates that because it's the last thing anyone wants to see in modern society."
