In the wake of FIFA president Sepp Blatter's view of racism on football, the Premier League has released a statement condemning the intolerance.
Blatter indicated that in the heat of battle, things are said that are not meant and that all can be resolved with a handshake after the match.
"The English game has been at the forefront of tackling racist behaviour and other forms of discrimination," read the statement.
"Everybody in the game in England understands any form of racism is totally unacceptable.
"There are still issues, as there are in society, so with our partners, Kick It Out, the PFA and The FA, we must remain committed and vigilant to maintaining the standards we have set and confronting any incidents that occur.
"There is no place for discrimination in football and we will continue to strive to eliminate it."
