LONDON (AP) — Outgoing Football Association chairman David Bernstein has joined FIFA's new anti-racism and discrimination task force.

Bernstein, who steps down from his role with the FA in July, will join a group led by FIFA vice president Jeffrey Webb. Also in the group is AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, who was abused by fans.

The task force will meet for the first time Monday.

Bernstein says "anti-discrimination is a subject that is close to my heart and something that, in England, we have been keen to address with the FA-led Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Action Plan involving the whole domestic game."

In the past two years, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Chelsea defender John Terry have been given bans for using racist language toward opponents.
