Piara Powar urges the FA to level disrepute charge against Liverpool

The head of European football's anti-racism group has urged the Football Association to charge Liverpool with bringing the game into disrepute for their response to Luis Suárez's eight-match ban for racially abusing the Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

Piara Powar, the executive director of European football's anti-discrimination body – Football Against Racism in Europe (Fare) – said the Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish's comments had been "undignified" and that their reaction had damaged the club's brand across the world.

"This is a lack of respect for the governing body by Liverpool and the FA should charge Liverpool FC and Kenny Dalglish," Powar said.
