Arsène Wenger supports UEFA’s latest campaign against racism and insists that everybody should be respected regardless of race, colour or belief.
As part of Football Against Racism in Europe’s (FARE) week of action, the captain of every Champions League and Europa League club will wear a branded ‘Unite against Racism’ armband in this week’s fixtures.
Wenger is behind the scheme and believes the responsibility to eradicate racism from the game must not be neglected.
“I feel it is important at any moment,” Wenger said.
“Racism or xenophobia or any other differences that can exist between people, for example different cultures... you have to always show respect for everybody and every culture and every human being, no matter where you come from and no matter when it is in the season.”
