In Europe, support for NBA punishment of Sterling

Published: 04.30.14, 22:28 / Israel News

The NBA's life ban for Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling won swift support in Europe but also produced calls for football to show similar resolve against racism.


Sepp Blatter, president of international governing body FIFA, and his European counterpart, Michel Platini both voiced approval on Wednesday.


Blatter tweeted: "Sport says no to racism. I fully support @NBA's decision to ban @LAClippers owner for life after his racist words."


In a statement to The Associated Press, Platini said: "It is a great decision and I support it completely." (AP)
