Solskjaer demands life ban for 'monkey chant' spectator at Manchester derby
AFP, Manchester :
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer demanded a life ban from all football grounds for the spectator who allegedly aimed racist monkey chants at his team's Brazilian midfielder Fred on Saturday.
United's 2-1 Premier League derby win over neighbours and defending champions Manchester City was overshadowed by a series of ugly incidents at the Etihad.
Solskjaer said both Fred and teammate Jesse Lingard had been "affected" by the alleged abuse.
However, the Norwegian insisted it is the individual concerned rather than City as a club who should bear the brunt of any sanctions.
"Why don't we educate him instead? It's not City's fault, it's his. Nothing to do with Man City as a football club," said the United boss.
"He's been caught on camera and he should never be allowed into a football ground again, it's unacceptable."
