It's supposed to be known as the ",[url=http://www.lockshoe.com]nike shox[/url];Beautiful Game",[url=http://www.lockshoe.com/nike-running-shoes-24]nike free[/url]; but the ugly face of racism returned to haunt European football once again Wednesday.
Manchester City's Yaya Toure, the Ivory Coast midfielder, was subjected to "monkey chants" during his side's 2-1 Champions League win against CSKA Moscow in Russia.
City is expected to make a formal complaint to UEFA, the game's European governing body, with Toure urging for action to be taken following his side's victory courtesy of two goals from Sergio Aguero.

"It is quite disappointing when you're talking about people continuing to do that,' Toure told Sky Sports.
'It is unbelievable and very sad on my part. I think UEFA need to do something strong. It would be nice if we could stop that.
"Some of the songs today were quite stupid and I think UEFA have to do the work. Every time we say something it continues, something has to be done to stop it."
City captain Vincent Kompany, who is of Congolese descent,[url=http://www.lockshoe.com/nike-shox-sko-22]billige nike shox[/url], took to Twitter to hit out at the abuse and sent a message to UEFA and the Russian government.
"Racist chants again in Moscow today.. We've all said enough. @UEFAcom, @GovernmentRF, CSKA, all eyes are on you now.."

UEFA has vowed to crack down harder on fans which continue to partake in racial abuse.
In May, the body's executive committee ratified a 10-match minimum ban for racial abuse by players or officials.
At the time, UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino stated that the organization's 53 members should adopt the same measures.
According to the new regulations, the first sanction for a club whose fans are found guilty of racist abuse will be a partial stadium closure. If the abuse persists, then there will be a full stadium closure and a $65,000 fine handed out.
"An association should adopt the same or similar measures,[url=http://www.lockshoe.com/nike-shox-sko-22]billige nike sko[/url]," Infantino said in May.
"UEFA has always acted in a way to try to convince people rather than impose. I don't think you measure the way of fighting against racism in one simple measure and sanction.",[url=http://www.lockshoe.com]nike løbesko[/url];
In August, Polish club Legia Warsaw was fined $41,000 and ordered to close the north stand of its stadium following racist behavior by supporters during a Champions League second qualifying round tie.

UEFA has been heavily criticized in the past for the way it has punished those found guilty of racial abuse compared with other offenses.
During Euro 2012,[url=http://www.lockshoe.com/nike-air-max-sko-21]nike air max[/url], Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner was handed a $125,800 fine for revealing a betting company's logo on his underwear after lifting his shirt while celebrating a goal.
