A number of high-profile racist incidents in domestic and international football have prompted PFA to take action in protest.

Watford captain Troy Deeney, who has been subject to racist abuse, said: "Enough is enough."

"On Friday we are sending a message to anyone that abuses players - or anyone else - whether from the crowd or online, that we won't tolerate it within football," said the 30-year-old striker.

"The boycott is just one small step, but the players are speaking out with one voice against racism."

A host of Premier League stars have shared PFA's '#Enough' post on social media.

"We are making a stand against racist abuse," the statement reads.

"We recognise that our platforms come with responsibility, and so we are using our voice to stand against racist abuse.

"Together, we are calling on social media platforms and footballing bodies to do more!"

Enough is enough.
