Mido blames FA inaction for Islamophobic abuse

Middlesbrough striker Ahmed Hossam, better known as Mido, complained at the lack of robust action by the FA following an earlier incident of Islamophobic taunting at a football match in Newcastle and claims that complacency has only emboldened the racists.

"I am asking the English FA to take serious action to stop such things. These chants are not directed at me as a person but it is directed at Islam”, he said.

Show Racism the Red Card have updated their education resource pack on tackling racism in football to include Islamophobia. The charity will be hosting a special screening of the film on racism and Islamophobia in football at the FCO in December. For more details on the resource packs, visit: www.theredcard.org.
