“Newcastle will pursue the most powerful imaginable motion in opposition to someone concerned with discriminatory behaviour and can reinforce any efforts by way of the government to protected a prison conviction.”
“Discrimination has completely no position in soccer, on the street, on-line or in wider society, and we can now not tolerate it below any cases.”
Newcastle, nineteenth within the league standings and winless this season, will tackle Crystal Palace on Saturday.
