Brighton boss Hughton feels ´unacceptable´ behaviour remains in football

Brighton and Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton feels there is still an "unacceptable" level of offensive behaviour in football despite significant improvements in recent years.

Hughton, who became the first mixed-race player to represent the Republic of Ireland, says there is a "better environment" in football today but still believes there are steps forward to be taken.

"We are all very aware at this particular moment of what does cross the line, certainly anything that is deemed offensive to any individual," he told a news conference on Thursday.

"It's not just about what's offensive to the changing room. If there is something said that's offensive to one particular individual, it's crossing the line.

"What we have in the game at the moment is certainly a better environment than there used to be, but there are areas that are still very much unacceptable.

"In our workplace at the moment, I think we are very aware of what's acceptable and what's not acceptable."
