Boro`s Egyptian striker and alleged hate crime victim has gone on record to blast the FA for their inability to combat the abuse levelled at him. He has angrily rounded on the powers that be, believing it was their inability to launch any sort of bannings that led to a similar action this year. He said:

‘They kept chanting disgusting words, racist words about Islam and unfortunately, this is the second time that the same fans have done this. It happened again because after the first time the English FA did nothing. I considered this as an invitation from the English FA to the Newcastle supporters to repeat such shameful acts.

I can assure you that nothing is going to happen this time again. The English FA said that they will be investigating the issue and will make use of the latest technology to stop such racist abuse of players but I feel that nothing will happen.

I am asking the English FA to take serious action to stop such things. These chants are not directed at me as a person but it is directed at Islam.’
