Uefa proposes 10-match ban for racism behaviour all players and officials

Players and officials found guilty of racist behaviour face 10-match bans as part of new plans proposed by Uefa today.
Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantino also revealed clubs could be forced to close part or all of their stadiums if fans racially abuse players.
Infantino said: "It's still a scourge on the game. We have to have sanctions.
"What we are proposing is that if a player or official is found guilty then they will be suspended for 10 matches."
Speaking at the Soccerex event in Manchester,  Infantino added: "If supporters are found guilty then there will be a partial closure of the stadium.
"This means the section where offence took place will be closed. If there is a second offence by the club's supporter there will be full closure with a minimum 50,000 Euros fine."
The debate on racism intensified this season after AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng led his team off the field during a friendly in Italy after facing abuse.
The Ghanaian walked off the pitch against Italian team Pro Patria after he was abused by their fans.
