Chelsea fans have made headlines for the wrong reasons as they were accused of ant-Semitic chants in their Europa League draw away at Vidi on Thursday night.

UEFA have vowed to investigate the alleged racist chanting that was aimed at rivals Tottenham.

This follows a club and police investigation into alleged racist abuse aimed at Raheem Sterling at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

A Chelsea spokesman said via Sky: “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 using anti-Semitic or racist words or actions will face the strongest possible action from the club.”
