Bernstein takes role on FIFA anti-racism group
LONDON -- Outgoing Football Association chairman David Bernstein has joined FIFA's new anti-racism and discrimination task force.
Bernstein, who steps down from his role with the FA in July, will join a group led by FIFA vice president Jeffrey Webb. Also in the group is AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, who was abused by fans.
The task force will meet for the first time Monday.
Bernstein says "anti-discrimination is a subject that is close to my heart and something that, in England, we have been keen to address with the FA-led Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Action Plan involving the whole domestic game."
