    Webb statement on AS Roma fine

    Jeffrey Webb statement regarding fine imposed on AS Roma:

    "As stated by FIFA President Joseph Blatter, the decision of the Italian Football Federation's Disciplinary Committee to impose only a 50,000 Euro fine on Roma for the racist actions of its supporters during a match at AC Milan on Sunday, without further investigation, is completely unacceptable. This incident is a clear example of the issue the Anti-Racism and Discrimination Task Force has at hand. It also reinforces the imperative responsibility FIFA, the Confederations and each of its 209 Member Associations have in implementing strong resolutions to support football's zero tolerance policy and strengthen FIFA's fight against racism and discrimination. 

    The resolutions before the FIFA Congress on May 31st will mark an important step towards eradicating these intolerable acts of violence from our fields."
