Shaun Wright Phillips is the former football player from England. He said that it will be a huge step will be taken the national football team of England if they decide to walk off from the pitch regarding the racist abuse faced by the black players. He has faced abuses a lot of times in his career too. He was once the target of the monkey chants. He added that those of the fans of England shout out abusive language against the players should be deprived of watching the game.

Phillips is a retired player of Manchester City for which he has played a lot of games. He said racist fans and those who support racism must be banned from all the games. If they are taken away from a thing that they love will wipe out abuses against a particular race in the future from the game. Black players from England faced a lot of racist abuse from local fans when they won the match against Montenegro during the first quarter of 2019. Fears grew that Gareth Southgate side members will again be targeted when they visit Sofia in October. The Bulgarian FA was fined by UEFA with the suspects that they were chanting racist comments towards the black players in one of the qualifier matches of Euro 2012 in Sofia.
