6:34 pm
issueis is completely unacceptable. the issue is what can o that i do about it. they are the european governing body but they claim the game was not in theirjurisdiction. we don't think that is right. what i find alarming is not only way are not getting involved here but fifa seem to be sitting on their hands. meanwhile, a player who has complained to the referee which he is entitled to do about abuse coming from the terraces from a small section, it could have been easily dealt with, the referee and the italian authorities have ignored it. they have banned him from complaining. the absence of any trust in those authority, from fifa, to way a to the italian federation, you are calling on the player themselves, black players in serie a to boycott their representative matches across the board. this is about players. i am alarmed that muntari ‘s team—mates have not become involved in this. his manager
6:35 pm
has not said more, what he said is inadequate as far as i'm concerned so inadequate as far as i'm concerned so it is about addressing racism together, as black players and white player, because that is the only way we are going to get past this problem in football, so it, i am calling on players in italy, black—and—white, to make it clear to the federation, in italy that their position is unacceptable, and if the decision is not reversed then they withdraw their season until it is. it doesn't seem feasible for players to down tool, to dj their team's prospectser though, that might be counter productive in the long run? well, i think i understand the argument, but if the italian authorities are going to blatantly ignore a property coll that we spent so ignore a property coll that we spent so long to put in place, and they have signed up to it and embraced it. suddenly to disregard it like
6:36 pm
that i am not sure what the players alternative is. let's stay with european football, because there is an italian club involved in a massive match tonight. juventus are away at monaco in the first leg of their champions league semifinal. our european football reporter steve crossman is here. monaco perhaps the surprise package in the last four, juventus, this european super powerer but monaco's attacking instinct, they will test their defence. yes, i think you saw from the victories over borussia dortmund and manchester city this tea m dortmund and manchester city this team are so capable going forward, the difference with this game of course, is theyjuventus will not approach the match in the same way. manchester city and dortmund has a way of looking at monaco and say we will try and outscore you. outcoring players like mbappe is difficult. he broke the record for henry at the youngest age ever. that has led to
6:37 pm
the comparisons she the new henry. he has a physicality menry maybe didn't have. doesn't have that flair that henri had when he was starting out. but he is a fear some player, as far as juventus going, because they are so good defensively, this isa they are so good defensively, this is a team who didn't concede a single goal in two legs against barcelona and knocked them out. it is easy to say attack versus defence, i don't thinkjuve will make the mistakes dortmund made or manchester city: i think we will see a counter attacking display and they have their own striker who will cause problems too. waiting for them, surely real madrid, there is another leg to play against atletico but it was another ronaldo show. do i have to talk to you or can ijust watch the goals. unbelievable. i saw a bit of him at euro 2016. he do
6:38 pm
very much running any more, so i don't think you can still have that debate, who is better messi or ronaldo but ronaldo is becoming the most effective player in world football. forget the best, the most effective. give him an opportunity, he will absolutely punish you and he was sensational. that is how you look at the truly great player, not the ones who stick to their strength, they adapt. he might be mast the peak of his powers but what powers they are. manufacture thank you. manufacture thank you. better injury news for manchester united on the eve of their europa league semifinal against celta vigo. they welcomed four players back to training today before flying off to spain. paul pogba, who has missed the last two games with muscle fatigue, took part, while defenders eric bailly, chris smalling and philjones are also back in contention for selection for the first leg. the first europa league semifinal has kicked off, with ajax taking on lyon in the first leg. the dutch side have taken the lead. 0n—loan chelsea forward

6:41 pm
performance. i broke the british record and produced one of the furthest performances for someone finishing outside the medals, that performance on that day would have been a solid silver medal in every 0lympics, so it's, you know, it's a bitter pill to swallow. it must be difficult not to feel he sentiment towards people like that and other athletes. i don't have a huge issue with her, i very no a an issue we the russian system, i don't think she probably had a say in it at all. i feel for she probably had a say in it at all. ifeel for her in she probably had a say in it at all. i feel for her in a way, that is not me being overly nice, i think whereas in our culture we wouldn't dream of cheating, in a culings chur they wouldn't dream of not cheat, and it is, it is sad for those athletes because she is a great athletes because she is a great athlete in her own right, i am sure and she wouldn't have thrown as far but she would have been a great
