Chelsea vow to ban fans filmed signing racist Mo Salah songs

Chelsea vow to ban fans filmed signing racist Mo Salah songs

"Detectives from Merseyside Police are linking in with the Metropolitan Police Service in relation to the latest Tweet and we understand a number of individuals who are now in Prague for the Slavia Prague V Chelsea Champions League game have been identified and have had their match tickets rescinded for this evening's fixture".

"Merseyside Police is now investigating the publication of a number of offensive Tweets made in relation to a Liverpool footballer".

Ex-Chelsea forward Salah, Player of the Year in England last season and victor of the African Footballer of the Year award for the second time in a row in January, is of Muslim faith.

In a statement issued shortly after kick-off, the club pledged to take the "strongest possible action" against any season ticket holders found to have misbehaved.

Once Chelsea had verified that the footage was of club supporters and filmed in Prague, their security team sought to identify those taking part in the chant about Mohamed Salah, the former Chelsea forward who is now at Liverpool, in order to prevent them from entering the stadium last night.

Chelsea boss Sarri backed Chelsea's stance on the latest racism storm as a "very strong decision".

The Blues are now in fourth place in the Premier League table as they seek Champions League qualification for next season, after they finished fifth and won the FA Cup with Antonio Conte in charge.

"I don't want to speak about something that I don't know".

"But of course he is in my mind for the next match, but I have to see the last two training (sessions)".

Liverpool also released a statement, which read: "The video circulating online, showing vile discriminatory chants being aimed at one of our players, is risky and disturbing".

Liverpool also issued a statement to defend one of its best players and condemn the behaviour as "unadulterated bigotry", stressing that there's no place for such conduct either in football or in society as a whole.

"It's not on the terraces, but it's still a disgrace".

"We've watched different games, especially matches where the opponents managed to get more points or put them under pressure and played very well".
