he Islamophobic slur attacks one of the Blues’ former players, after 1,000 fans travelled to attend their Europa League quarter-final clash against Slavia Prague.

The blue labelled the supporters an ’embarrassment’ to the club. “Chelsea FC finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour abhorrent and where there is clear evidence of Chelsea season ticket holders or members involved in such behaviour, we will take the strongest possible action against them.
“As pertains to this latest incident, the club is working with Merseyside Police to ascertain the facts around this footage with the aim of identifying individuals featuring in it.
Liverpool also underlined their dismay at the turn of events, calling it an example of ‘unadultered bigotry’.
“Liverpool Football Club believes it is the responsibility of those in positions of authority, following proper process, to act urgently to identify and then punish anyone committing a hate crime,”
