Former France international and Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has said clubs need to interact with fans in order to curb the rate of racism at stadiums and in the game at large.
Speaking in the wake of the racist abuse directed at three players in the England team at the just concluded Euros, Evra maintained that constant education of the fans is needed to directly tackle the scourge of racism.
Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka all missed from the spot in the final against Italy and all received embarrassing racist comments on social media, prompting support to the lads from all across the world.
The abuse drew lots of condemnation from England's captain, manager, royalty, religious leaders and politicians, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson urging social media companies to do more to tackle online abuse that "emerged from the dark spaces of the internet."
