UEFA announced earlier today that they have begun disciplinary proceedings against Chelsea over allegations regarding their supporters signing anti-Semitic songs

The fans’ antics at games this season have been publicly condemned by the likes of Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri and Cesc Fabregas after Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling was racially abused in a Premier League match on December 13.

Shortly after that, the Chelsea fans again caused further trouble by singing anti-Semitic songs in a Europa League meeting with MOL Vidi in Budapest.

Jesse Lingard urges Man United to bounce back ASAP

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard issued a rallying call to the squad ahead of Sunday's trip to Everton in the Premier League.

“First of all I want to speak with my club, second I don’t want to generalise because 99 per cent [of] our fans are really wonderful,” said Sarri on Chelsea fans‘ actions last month.

“In every community, I think there are some stupids. And so altogether we have to fight against the stupid people but not against the Chelsea fans.”

Now the UEFA have announced they will deal with this in their Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body’s next meeting on February 28.
