Sports minister Richard Caborn on Thursday met UEFA chiefs and told them they are being too soft on racism in football. Caborn met UEFA chief executive Lars-Christer Olsson and communications director William Gaillard in London - and expressed his view that fining clubs or national associations over racist incidents is inadequate.

In December, Spain were fined 44,000 by FIFA after widespread racist abuse of England players during a friendly in Madrid. The sports minister also raised complaints by supporters' groups, who have claimed English fans travelling to club matches in Europe often get a raw deal.
