Chelsea Investing Racism Against Raheem Sterling

Chelsea FC have suspended four fans after alleged racist abuse toward Raheem Sterling in the win over Manchester City.

A statement read: "Our investigations into this matter are ongoing. We are fully supporting the police investigation and any information we gather will be passed on to them.

"Chelsea Football Club finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour abhorrent and if there is evidence of ticket holders taking part in any racist behaviour, the club will issue severe sanctions, including bans.

"We will also fully support any criminal prosecutions."


Chelsea identified the supporter who allegedly racially abused Sterling during the Blues' clash with Manchester City on Saturday evening earlier in the day.

Footage showed a group of home fans shouting at Sterling as he retrieved the ball for a corner, with one allegedly calling the forward a 'black c***'.

And Chelsea have now given the details of the fan to the police, who interviewed Sterling on Sunday morning. The 24-year-old told cops he heard racial abuse.

The club viewed the footage from a variety of angles and used lip-readers to try and confirm the exact words spoken, according to the Daily Mail.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said it has has not yet spoken to the supporter.
