Chelsea have decided to release an official statement condemning their supporters who sang an anti-Semitic chant during the club’s 2-2 draw with MOL Vidi at Groupama Arena.
The events came after Saturday’s incident at Stamford Bridge which saw Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling racially abused during the Blues’ 2-0 defeat.
Four fans were identified and suspended by Chelsea while the club and the Metropolitan Police opened investigations last weekend.
Meanwhile, on Thursday night, few minutes after kick-off at the Groupama Arena a small minority of supporters were heard singing an anti-Semitic chant about Tottenham supporters.
A Chelsea spokesman on Thursday said: “Anti-Semitism and any other kind of race-related or religious hatred is abhorrent to this club and the overwhelming majority of our fans. It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities.”
“We have stated this loud and clear on many occasions from the owner, the board, coaches and players.”
“Any individuals that can’t summon the brainpower to comprehend this simple message and are found to have shamed the club by used using anti-Semitic or racist words or actions will face the strongest possible action from the club.”
Maurizio Sarri’s side made sure they remained unbeaten in Group L after a 2-2 draw in Hungary.
The Blues are back in the Premier League action on Sunday afternoon as they will travel to Falmer Stadium where they will take on Brighton & Hove Albion.
