UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin accepts that it would be 'naive to think we've done all we can' in trying to rid football of racism.
Already this season fans have witnessed a number of incidents where players have been targeted by vile chants and gestures.
Mario Balotelli, Romelu Lukaku and Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Taison have all been subjected to monkey chants while England's Euro 2020 qualifier away in Bulgaria was stopped on two occasions due to excessive abuse towards England's black players like Raheem Sterling and Tyrone Mings.

For Ceferin, while he does not accept the view among supporters that UEFA do not care for those players abused, he accepts more must be done to get rid of it.
'I don't blame the players for what they say,' Ceferin told the Mirror. 'I understand that the players are desperate because of the punishments and the incidents that are happening again and again.
'Of course you want say [to UEFA]: 'Go to hell!' I know. But I am not so naive to think that we've done all we can and now everything is finished. We haven't.
