UEFA wants Henry to meet coach Aragones

Share |

In a new effort to fight racism, French striker Thierry Henry is being urged by UEFA to meet Spanish national coach Luis Aragones, who was fined €3,000 for calling him a “black ****”.

The UEFA board want Henry to meet Aragones at a Soccer Against Racism event which will take place in Barcelona in February.

UEFA chief executive Lars-Christer Olsson said: “We hope this event to surpass any anti-racist initiative we have held before and a gesture like this would do everything to help.”

Luis Aragones made his comments to Jose Reyes last October during a training session ahead of a World Cup qualifying game against Belgium, with a television crew capturing his outburst.
