Chelsea blast 'brainless' fans for vile 'anti-Semitic' chants at Europa League clash just five days after Raheem Sterling was allegedly racially abused at Stamford Bridge

Sections of the away support in Hungary for the dead rubber against Vidi were alleged to have chanted: "Barcelona, Real Madrid, Tottenham are a load of y***."

Chelsea said in a statement: "Antisemitism 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 using antisemitic or racist words or actions will face the strongest possible action from the club.”


One person at the game fixture, which ended 2-2, said: "Just 3 minutes into the game and some @ChelseaFC fans are singing antisemetic (sic) chants…it’s embarrassing. It MUST stop! @kickitout."

Before adding: "Chuck in some homophobic language now too. Disgrace."

While Eurosport commentator Dan Levene tweeted: "Regrettably, little of the talk here is about the match. Racist chants from some in the Chelsea end already look likely to be what makes the headlines tomorrow morning."

Four fans were suspended indefinitely by the club after footage appeared to show England international Sterling being racially abused.

Colin Wing was alleged to have called the ex-Liverpool star a "f****** black c***", but the 60-year-old denied the claims, insisting he called him a "Manc c***".

While a second supporter identified to have hurled abuse at the former QPR youth star also denied any racist chanting.

Chelsea boss Maurixio Sarri labelled the verbal attack on Sterling as "disgusting", while Eden Hazard insisted those who took part are "not proper fans".
