Chelsea FC has announced it will ban fans filmed pushing a black metro passenger off a train in Paris yesterday. The fans repeatedly stopped the man from boarding the train and then chanted:
“We’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it”.
Chelsea condemned the actions of those involved through a statement published hours after the incident took place, saying it will issue bans to any of its fans found to have been a part of this.
A club spokesperson said:
“Such behaviour is abhorrent and has no place in football or society. We will support any criminal action against those involved, and should evidence point to involvement of Chelsea season-ticket holders or members the club will take the strongest possible action against them, including banning orders.”
Chelsea are also likely to face a UEFA investigation into the conduct of its fans.
Pathetic jokers. Have they forgotten that some of the players who are keeping their team on top and scoring goals are black?
Anyway, it doesn’t surprise me that those idiots are Chelsea fans. That club has a long history of racism on the terraces and let’s not forget John Terry.
