After anti-Semitic posts on social networks, Chelsea are cracking down on a supporter of the English top club. The fan was banned for a long time.
After the court proceedings were concluded in February, the club made its own investigations and decided to “exclude the person in question from Chelsea for ten years,” said team manager Thomas Tuchel’s club.
Chelsea wants to ensure that players, fans, employees and visitors of different origins, including the Jewish community, feel “welcome, valued and safe,” the statement said: “We will therefore not tolerate any behavior from supporters who pursue this goal endanger. “
The club of the German national players Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Antonio Rüdiger will take part in the social media boycott of the English clubs in the fight against racism, hate and intolerance on the Internet from Friday afternoon.
