Harrison, New Jersey:

Thierry Henry says football officials should deduct points from teams whose fans racially abuse players.

Several players have been targets of abuse from supporters in recent weeks, including American forward Jozy Altidore of the Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, Barcelona defender Daniel Alves and AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, who led his teammates off the field during a friendly game in protest.

Asked during an interview with The Associated Press on Monday how to stop abuse, the former Arsenal and Barcelona star responded: "Maybe take some points away."
