PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle gives his support to UEFA over their plans to ban players for 10 matches if found guilty of racism.

PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle has backed UEFA's proposal to ban players for 10 matches if found guilty of racism.

European football's governing body revealed their plans for harsher sanctions at the Soccerex conference in Manchester on Wednesday.

"My reaction to this is one of near satisfaction," Carlisle told Sky Sports News.

"One of my greatest points of contention with the Football Association and the way we approach issues of race and racism in this country is that the penalties are nominal.

"When you move that on to UEFA and FIFA, the way they have previously sanctioned issues of racism has been laughable. A minimum 10-game ban is a fantastic start. That is a deterrent."

Meanwhile, the FA have said that they welcome UEFA's plans for stricter punishments over racist offences.
