Calls for Chelsea chief to speak out on fans’ behaviour.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been urged to speak out against the behaviour of his club’s fans in Paris this week after racial abuse of a man in the Metro station, CaughtOffside reports.
The Russian is not known for speaking publicly and has been an elusive figure in his time at Stamford Bridge, but the Daily Mirror’s Dave Kidd believes a message from the 48-year-old would be a strong statement.
“What a powerful message it would be if Chelsea’s owner sat in front of a camera and stated that he is a Jewish man, in charge of an ethnically diverse and cosmopolitan team and that he will not tolerate such sickening scenes being perpetrated in the name of his club,” Kidd writes.
Chelsea drew 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain in midweek, but this strong result was marred by the unfortunate incident with their supporters.
