Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits he is disgusted at the behaviour of Chelsea fans who allegedly racially abused Raheem Sterling on Saturday.

Chelsea have suspended four supporters pending further investigation and the Metropolitan Police are carrying out their own inquiry.

“It was disgusting,” Sarri said.

“I want to say that I condemn any form of discrimination, of course. I think that I have to stop here. Because there is an investigation so I think it’s better not to say something more. Of course my opinion is that I condemn every sort of discrimination.”

Earlier in the week, Eden Hazard backed Sterling for speaking out and insisted the fans involved are not proper fans.

“The only thing I can say is, I support the player. Sterling is a fantastic player,” Hazard said.

“There is an investigation, so we don’t know what will happen. They are called fans but, for me, they are not fans. Proper Chelsea fans just sing for Chelsea and enjoy the game.

“I am fully supportive of Raheem and this kind of racism cannot be in the stadium anymore.”

Asked what he thinks of Hazard’s comments, Sarri said: “I am very happy with the words of Eden. I think the club had banned four persons, I think. And so the opinion of the club, the opinion of Eden and my opinion is the same.”
