(AP) The head of FIFA's anti-racism task force will meet Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure on Sunday to discuss the abuse he faced in Moscow this week.


FIFA vice president Jeffrey Webb has asked to meet the Ivory Coast midfielder when he attends City's match at Chelsea.


CSKA Moscow is facing disciplinary action after UEFA accused its fans of chanting racial abuse at Toure, who is black, during a Champions League match on Wednesday.


Webb said: "I have asked to meet Yaya Toure. For me it's about how he felt and I would like to speak to him first to find out what his experience was."
