“Soccer is really a formidable weapon to guard the principles of humankind,” he further added.

Liverpool’s Klopp says football should simply take”an entire stand”, while Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri suggested a 10-minute break in the very first example of misuse.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said punishment has to be severe than it is now, suggesting teams that their fans were accountable for racist chanting might be kicked out of a tournament.

Former Barcelona manager Guardiola added:”I remember a long time ago, people said you cannot mix politics and football. That isn’t true. Humanrights is anywhere.”

The issue of how football should tackle racism was one of the main talking things as premierleague managers faced the media before this weekend suits.

It comes after England players including City’s Raheem Sterling and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi – were targeted at racist chanting during Monday’s Euro 20 20 qualifier at Montenegro.

After Sterling scored England’s fifth goal in the 5-1 win, he celebrated by putting his hands to his ears also later said the gesture was a reaction to the brutal abuse.

England manager Gareth Southgate said he discovered abuse led at his players and also the episodes were reported to Uefa, which has charged Montenegro with racist behaviour.

“The situation just changes when you do something. Once you do nothing it simply stays exactly the same,” Guardiola, 48, said.

“That’s the reason when people love Raheem expressed that which he achieved it really is advisable for our society.”

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti said his team asked three times for their game at Inter Milan in January to become frozen as a result of alleged racist chanting.

Back in January 2013, AC Milan player Kevin-Prince Boateng sparked a walk-off as a result of racist chants at a friendly between his team and Italian lesser division club Pro Patria.

‘The hindrance Needs to become much worse’

Italian Sarri, who spoke out against Chelsea fans accused of abusing Sterling at December, says a principle which makes it possible for a suit to be ceased should be introduced across the activity.

“In every country you will find a number of stupid people today, I presume. Therefore it is a big problem.

“Likely it’s right to stop the game for 10 minutes at the very first circumstance.”

Klopp says he might have no qualms in carrying his players off the pitch but just if there was a co ordinated procedure inplace.

“Whatever I could do, I would do. We’ve to stop matches, we’ve to do that,” that the 51-year-old German said.

“whether it’s the entire rack, I would get it done 100%.

“When I take off the players and somebody else,’It wasn’t that acute’, you drop the game our job is to win football matches.

“However, in case the whole rack would do it then it is wholly different.”

Englishman Warnock said he would not be afraid to take action himself in case the game officials were told regarding racist abuse towards players but never acted on it.

“I would take a team off if that’s what happened, the referee was informed and did not do anything about it,” that the 70-year-old said.

“It’s made to be more intense than a fine or even a smack on the wrist. The deterrent has made to be much worse than it is.”
