City to launch UEFA complaint
Manchester City will make an official complaint to UEFA over alleged racist chanting aimed at Yaya Toure during the match at CSKA Moscow.
Sergio Aguero struck twice as City came from behind to secure a 2-1 win in the Champions League Group D game but some of the gloss was taken off the victory by the unpalatable actions of the home support.
Toure spoke to the referee and City officials spoke to UEFA's match delegate after the match at the Arena Khimki and the club will make a written complaint on their return to Manchester.
Toure told Sky Sports: "I told the ref. I think it was unbelievable and very sad. We want to stop that.
"I think UEFA have to do a lot to try to stop it. Maybe close the stadium for a couple of games. As an African player, it is always sad when you hear something like that."
City manager Manuel Pellegrini added: "It's a pity and I hope we have the right measures."
FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce called on the Russian authorities to clamp down on racism.
"The Russian federation have got to assure - along with the Russian government - that these incidents are put to bed because it's happening too often. Too much abuse has been happening in many, many parts of eastern Europe," he told BBC Radio.
"Eastern Europe have problems, but we have problems in other parts of the world as well. It's got to be eradicated and the only way is to take serious action against the people who do it - don't allow them to watch football matches.
"I am absolutely appalled by events of this evening. I've always been outspoken against any form of racialism or sectarianism in sport."
The incidents in Moscow comes 18 months after Porto were fined £16,700 for their fans' racial abuse of Mario Balotelli during a Europa League game against City.
