(Reuters) - Clubs whose fans are found guilty of being involved in racist incidents must have points docked and forced to play their games behind closed doors, according to West Ham United forward Michail Antonio.

A number of racist incidents have come to light in the Premier League this season with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah the latest victim at West Ham’s London Stadium, where racial slurs were directed at the Egypt international last week.

He can get back into the stadium,” Antonio told Sky Sports.

“If you start playing games behind closed doors and deducting points, then the problem is inside themselves, they’re going to deal with it themselves.

In December last year, Chelsea suspended four people from Stamford Bridge, pending a police investigation into alleged racial abuse of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling, but Antonio feels banning fan alone will not solve the problem.

If you affect their team, the fans, his friends, are going to turn on him.” Antonio said racism could be eradicated from stadiums if the Football Association (FA) and UEFA took stricter action when incidents were reported.

If they want to hammer down on it next season, it could take five or 10 years,” he said.
