Chelsea have vowed to take the ‘strongest action’ against the ‘idiot’ who appeared to aim a racist gesture at Tottenham forward Son Heung-min during Sunday’s Premier League clash.
The incident is believed to have taken place when Son was taking a corner and someone in the Stamford Bridge crowd made a despicable gesture targeting the player’s ethnicity.
Chelsea described the behaviour as ‘totally abhorrent’ and are investigating the matter in order to identify the individual responsible.
A club statement read, “Chelsea Football Club finds any form of discriminatory behaviour totally abhorrent. It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities.
“Chelsea FC has consistently made its zero tolerance position on discriminatory behaviour very clear, yet there are still idiots like this that attach themselves to this club as so-called ‘fans’, which shames Chelsea FC, our coaches, players, staff and our true supporters.
“We are investigating this incident and, if identified, this individual will face the strongest action from the club.”
