Ian Wright has heavily criticised the FA after a tribunal it conducted concluded that former Crawley manager John Yems is "not a conscious racist", despite highlighting a number of offensive racial remarks within its report. 

The FA has banned Yems from football for 18 months after an investigation into 16 allegations of comments which "included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race and/or nationality and/or religion or belief and/or gender" to Crawley players between 2019 and 2022.
