THE Football Association have confirmed they are investigating footage that showed Leeds United striker El Hadji Diouf being racially abused at Millwall.

The Lions have reopened an investigation into the incident, saying they are "appalled" by a report shown on Sky Sports News on Monday night.

It has been reported that the Whites have already provided the FA with the Senegal striker's version of what happened.

In the immediate aftermath of the game, Diouf told club officials he had not heard any abuse and had no complaint to make.

An FA statement said: "We were concerned by the footage and we have requested a copy for our full consideration. We will work with the relevant authorities including the police to investigate fully."

    And bail yourselves out for the awful handling of the John Terry and Louis Suarez incidents. What's to investigate ? the police and the club are dealing with it appropriately and the individuals will be dealt with SWIFTLY and with minimal fuss not long and drawn out like you wish to do things, leave us alone you old fashioned clowns. you done sweet FA for yrs your views and values are out dated. how you run your association is a joke I bet you've taken more back handers than sky and the news of the world put together, you keep sucking up to SEPP and buying his love so he can give you the World Cup, I say "you" cause there's absolutely no way you've ever done anything for "us" And he gives you nothing but criticism in return. You have failed on so many fronts and lost so much trust over the yrs that even the football leagues want nothing to do with you. What have you actually done for the black man in our game or the good of our game you go missing when ever there's a whiff of trouble, you hide behind your own ignorance and your oh so predictable.
    Happy 150th anniversary, if there is a god then it should be your last. When you get the chance, please ask the perpetrators if they was acting on behalf of the club or themselves and whether or not they wish the club to be punished, but like "you" is their answer predictable.

    Why oh why is it always Millwall that gets picked on. Especially in the same week as we're going to Luton. Are they hoping for more trouble to get rid of us?
