Video: Chelsea fans in racism scandal after preventing black man boarding Metro train in Paris

This is just disgusting.

Chelsea FC have promised to take “the strongest possible action” against a number of their supporters involved in a vile act of racism on a Metro train in Paris following last night’s Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain.

Footage of a number of Chelsea fans abusing a black man and refusing to allow him board a Metro train surfaced online overnight, with Chelsea quickly condemning the incident and vowing to take action against those responsible.

The video shows some Chelsea fans pushing a black man off the train as he attempted to get on board, followed by chants of “we’re racist, we’re racist and that’s the way we like it”.

Chelsea FC last night released a statement which read: “Such behaviour is abhorrent and has no place in football or society.

“We will support any criminal action against those involved, and should evidence point to involvement of Chelsea season-ticket holders or members the club will take the strongest possible action against them, including banning orders.”
