'It's a myth that football and human rights shouldn't mix. You only need to look at the issues around racism in recent years to realise what an important role human rights should play in football. So I'm delighted to be on-board with Amnesty for their first ever football film festival.
'The festival will be a great chance to put a spotlight on the discrimination, such as racism and homophobia, that both spectators and players still sadly deal with in our stadia.
'It’s also a great opportunity to debate the human rights issues sometimes forgotten about when a major sporting event comes to town.'
