    Webb statement on Tavecchio comments

    The football community is appalled by the recent racist comments made by the Italian Football Federation Vice President, Mr. Carlo Tavecchio, a year after FIFA Member Associations unanimously approved a resolution to fight against racism and discrimination.

    After addressing the issue with the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), FIFA and the Anti-Racism and Discrimination Task Force are looking deeper into this matter, while awaiting its official response.

    The FIGC and the football family at large deserve exemplary leadership capable of directing the industry in a transparent way for a dignified, diverse and inclusive society.

    As guiding voices within our communities, we strongly urge all football officials to speak and act in a responsible manner, adhering to the principle of respect that every human merits.
