Romelu Lukaku believes that the football world should take stronger action against racism.

The Chelsea striker is calling on top players including the bosses of social media platforms to sit down to tackle the problem.

"The captains of each team and four or five players, like the great personalities of each team, should have a meeting with the CEOs of Instagram, governments and the football associations," the 28-year-old Belgian argues in conversation with

CNN Sport

.

"We should just sit down and talk about it in a big meeting. If you really want to end something, you can do it."

Before the start of matches in the Premier League, almost all players kneel to make a statement against racism.

However, Lukaku wonders if that signal is strong enough.

"I think we can take firmer stances. Yes, we kneel and eventually everyone clap, but sometimes you see an insult after the game."

The Belgian top scorer of all time says that he has often had to deal with racism, especially during his period at Internazionale, but never gives up the fight.

"Football should be a game of joy and will never succumb to discrimination. We won't let that happen."
