Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has warned Russia their World Cup in 2018 could face boycotts.

Toure has warned Russia they face a World Cup boycott by black players unless more is done to combat racist abuse.

Still seething at his treatment at the Khimki Arena on Wednesday, the Manchester City midfielder delivered his stark message as UEFA announced they were investigating CSKA Moscow over the racist behaviour of their fans.

The Ivory Coast midfielder said: "It is a real problem here, something that happens all the time, and of course they need to sort it out before the World Cup. Otherwise, if we are not confident coming to the World Cup in Russia, we don’t come."
