UEFA have fined Chelsea 13,000 euros (£11,100) for the actions of Chelsea fans during the Europa League match away to Malmo in February.

Chelsea were charged by European football’s governing body over pitch invasions by Chelsea supporters during the first leg of our Europa League last-32 tie on February 14, which the Blues won 2-1. Chelsea beat Malmo 3-0 at Stamford Bridge in the second-leg.

Malmo were hit with a £49,000 fine by UEFA because their supporters also threw objects and set off fireworks. Malmo supporters appeared to launch plastic beer cups at Chelsea fans in the away end early in the first half before police had to move in to calm down the situation.

At the final whistle, several fans entered the field of play, one of them reaching Eden Hazard and grabbing the Chelsea forward, only releasing his grip when the Belgian gave him his shirt.

Hazard brushed off the incident after the game, saying: “It’s not an incident. He just asked for my shirt.”
