Chelsea have vowed to take the ‘strongest action’ possible against the ‘idiot’ who appeared to make a racist gesture toward Tottenham forward Son Heung-min during Sunday’s Premier League match.
Son is thought to have been taking a corner when a fan in the Stamford Bridge crowd made an offensive gesture directed at the player’s race.
Chelsea referred to the actions as “totally abhorrent,” and they are looking into the situation to find the offender.
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.”
