A video was circulated online before Chelsea’s Europa League game against Slavia Prague showing some disgraceful Chelsea fans singing a horrible song about Liverpool player Mohamed Salah.
Three of six supporters identified were turned away at the Eden Arena in Prague.
Chelsea have vowed to issue bans to those identified, who are an embarrassment to majority of Chelsea fans who won’t tolerate such behaviours. Real Chelsea fans won’t act like these fans.
A statement from Chelsea: “Chelsea FC finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour abhorrent and where there is clear evidence of Chelsea season ticket holders or members involved in such behaviour, we will take the strongest possible action against them.
“Such individuals are an embarrassment to the vast majority of Chelsea supporters who won’t tolerate them in their club.”
Liverpool also released a statement calling the song “dangerous and disturbing. “
Liverpool said: “The video circulating online, showing vile discriminatory chants being aimed at one of our players.
“This behaviour needs to be called out for what it is – unadulterated bigotry. Liverpool Football Club believes it is the responsibility of those in positions of authority, following proper process, to act urgently to identify and then punish anyone committing a hate crime.
“There is no place for this behaviour in football, there is no place for it in society. A crime of this nature has more victims than any individual it is aimed at and, as such, collective and decisive action is needed to address it.
Liverpool added: “The club is working with Merseyside Police and Chelsea on the matter. We thank (Chelsea) for their condemnation and a commitment to act urgently to identify any individuals responsible.”
