UEFA investigating Chelsea fans over alleged anti-semitic chanting during Europa League tie

The club's supporters have made the headlines again for all the wrong reasons

Chelsea supporters have been accused of using anti-semitic chants during their team's Europa League tie in Hungary on Thursday night, after the blues drew 2-2 against MOL Vidi in Budapest.

The news follows a police investigation into alleged racist abuse aimed at Raheem Sterling at Stamford Bridge last weekend which led to the club suspending four men.

UEFA will not act until reviewing reports from match officials and their own match delegate tonight. A decision will then be made on whether to take the matter further.

Charges against football clubs are usually filed within 24 hours.

According to The Telegraph, a sizeable group of Chelsea supporters could be heard chanting abuse about "Yids" only minutes into the Group L clash.


The club took 1,273 fans to the Groupama Arena in Hungary's capital but would have been hoping for a peaceful evening following last week's racial abuse of Raheem Sterling from a supporter.

Chelsea said in a statement: "Anti-semitism and any other kind of race-related or religious hatred is abhorrent to this club and the overwhelming majority of our fans. It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities.

"We have stated this loud and clear on many occasions from the owner, the board, coaches and players.

"Any individuals that can’t summon the brainpower to comprehend this simple message and are found to have shamed the club by used using antisemitic or racist words or actions will face the strongest possible action from the club.”
