J.League Side Striker Tadanari Lee Pushes For More Action Against Racism

J.League side Urawa Reds striker Tadanari Lee has urged Japanese football to follow the Premier League’s zero-tolerance attitude toward racism "after taking part in the first J.League game to be played behind doors," according to Andrew McKirdy of the JAPAN TIMES. On Sunday, the J.League handed the club an unprecedented one-game supporter ban for a “Japanese only” banner hung by fans over an entrance to a stand at a game earlier this month. Lee, who joined Urawa from League Championship side Southampton at the start of the year, "applauded the J.League’s efforts to tackle discrimination in Japanese stadiums." Lee said, “Of course there are times when I feel it. ... I’m a football player and all I want to do is play football. I’d really like this kind of thing to stop" (JAPAN TIMES, 3/24).
