?West Ham United forward Michail Antonio has called for harsher punishments to help eradicate racism in football, including 'games behind closed doors and points deductions'.

If you start playing games behind closed doors and deducting points, then the problem is inside themselves.



While the fan that threw the banana skin received a fine and four-year ban from football, Antonio told  ?Sky Sports News  that tougher sanctions that impacted the club would perhaps work as a better deterrent Finding an individual does nothing.



The Premier League has witnessed a number of high-profile racial incidents this season, including Liverpool's Mohamed Salah being subjected to alleged abuse by Hammers fans during their game earlier this month.

While admitting his surprise at the results, the 28-year-old believes more should be done by the FA and UEFA when racial incidents at football games occur.

Antonio's comments came after ?Sky Sports News released data claiming 86% of football fans that regularly attended games in the UK have witnessed racial incidents, while that figure rises to 93% for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic supporters.

Arsenal's ?Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also had a banana skin thrown in his direction during the north London derby at the Emirates in December, while  ?Raheem Sterling  was the subject of alleged racial abuse during a game against Chelsea in the same month.
