Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has urged UEFA to do more to eradicate racism from football.

England players suffered racist abuse from Bulgarian fans during a EURO 2020 qualifier in Sofia.

“I kind of remember the game and seem to think I was on the bench before coming on,” Lampard said.

“I travelled with England in certain parts of Europe and we all felt it but maybe didn’t speak about it enough.

“The governing bodies now have to make a big step because I don’t think we should rely on individual players to be making steps.

“The collective nature of how England dealt with it from manager through to staff and players was something really good to see. It’s not the end of the story but it shows that we’re moving in the right direction and it must carry on.”
