More than 1,000,000 sign petition demanding lifetime football bans for racists
The Metro says: A petition calling for people who racially abuse footballers to be banned from matches in England for life has been signed by more than one million people in just 36 hours.
The Change campaign has attracted staggering support after three England players were inundated with sick messages following Italy’s Euros victory at Wembley on Sunday night.
Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho were all sent vile slurs and monkey emojis on social media immediately after the match.
Now, more than one million people are calling on the Government and the game’s governing body to introduce lifetime bans for anyone who targets a player offline or online.
