Chelsea to ban any fans found ‘shaming’ club at Watford
Chelsea will ban any supporters found to have used
antisemitic language or behaviour during the defeat at Watford on Monday,
saying it “shames the club”.
A report on a Jewish website said one fan was left
“disgusted” by chanting from fellow Blues supporters, reporting the
incident to stewards at the ground.
“Antisemitism has no place in our club, football or wider
society,” said a Chelsea statement.
The club have launched an investigation in co-operation
with Watford and the police.
The statement added: “Anyone found guilty of
antisemitic language or behaviour will face action from the club, including
bans, and will be asked to attend equality education courses.
“We welcome the fact that Chelsea fans have reported
this behaviour, which shames our club.”
