PFA CHIEF GORDON Taylor wants players who are found guilty of racist abuse to be sacked.
Taylor is to present a plan to the Professional Football Negotiating and Consultative Committee, looking to bring in a new ruling from next season as he hopes to change the contracts of Premier League and Football League players.
Speaking on the proposed player contracts Taylor said: “I don’t see a problem with that being introduced.
“It would say that racist abuse, if found guilty, will be classed as gross misconduct and a reason to terminate a contract.”
This season has seen incidents where Luis Suarez and John Terry were accused of racial abuse, but both Liverpool and Chelsea have been supportive of their players and a dismissal for either player has not developed.
Suarez was banned for eight games and fined 40,000 pounds for racially abusing Patrice Evra in October’s 1-1 draw at Anfield.
Terry will stand trial in July after he was alleged to have made racial comments to QPR player Anton Ferdinand, also last October.
Terry lost the England captaincy during the saga, which also led to Fabio Capello’s resignation from the England job.
Taylor said: “It just highlights the point in the standard players’ contract. I feel it’s important to highlight it, bearing in mind what has happened, and not mess about with it and not afford for anybody to be ambiguous about what the consequences are.
“I’m not saying it’s ambiguous (now). But just to really put it in there means there is no misunderstanding on how seriously we take it.
“If any player is found guilty of racist abuse, the club and the player need to be aware that could be a solid reason for terminating the contract.”
