Thierry Henry has called for Fifa to take a moral lead by imposing greater sanctions against Spain coach Luis Aragones for his racist comments.
Henry was angered by the Spanish Football Association's decision to fine Aragones just 3000 euros (£2,060).
"It's up to Fifa to step in - they are the only ones who can do something," Henry told The Sun newspaper.
"It is laughable. The Spanish FA fined him for the sake of it, not because they felt he said something wrong."
Aragones was handed the fine on Tuesday after making racist remarks about Henry to Arsenal team-mate and Spanish international Jose Antonio Reyes last October.
The fine was much less than the expected amount of about £22,000 or even the suspension of his coaching licence.
"To fine Aragones £2,000 is absolutely ridiculous," added Henry.
"You really have to look at the Spanish authorities and they must take a long look at themselves.
"They obviously don't care about racism. There have been other times when they have fined clubs a few hundred quid for racism.
"Fifa say they run the game, so now it's up to them to lead by example.
"They should look at this fine and make it a proper one. They must also tell the Spanish FA to get real."
Aragones himself has declared his anger at receiving a fine at all and insisted he had been made a "scapegoat".
But Henry's Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also said Aragones' punishment was too lenient.
