William Gallas: Says it's time for UEFA and FIFA to react to racism

Some Inter Milan supporters aimed monkey chants at Gallas' team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor during Thursday's night's UEFA Europa League clash in Italy, while fans were also seen waving an inflatable banana.

Earlier this season AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng walked off the pitch in protest to racist chants by opposition fans and 35-year-old Gallas feels his reaction was justified.

Tottenham have urged UEFA to act over Thursday's incident, with the organisation yet to announce whether they will launch an investigation.

French centre-back Gallas believes football's governing bodies need to take a stronger stance.

"Some players have already come off the pitch to show they are disappointed," he told the Daily Mirror. "I understand it and it shows we are not happy about it.

"It's not the first time we have had these incidents. We've had them for a long time now and it is time for the people to react - UEFA and FIFA."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
