Yaya Touré understands little of the decision of wereldvoetbalbond FIFA for its own antiracismewerkgroep to lift.

“My whole life I have had to deal with racism, whether on the street or in stadiums. So when I got the letter which stated that the FIFA this ‘task force’ has been lifted, I was very disappointed,” says the 33-year-old Touré, who as a consultant was related to the working group, Tuesday in a statement.

“The letter of the FIFA lists all the good work that has emerged from the opinions and recommendations of the task force. After the FIFA for decades and has done too little to tackle racism and, once they do not have enough did in the run-up to the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Russia, why would they stop something that starts to work?”

“I can only hope that the FIFA here, well have thought. The letter which I have received, don’t give me a lot of confidence. The are the fans and the players who will feel like the FIFA this does not solve.”
