Blues skipper says fans behaviour was “unacceptable”.
Chelsea captain John Terry has blasted the behaviour of the Chelsea fans embroiled in this week’s race row by branding them as “unacceptable”, The Sun reports.
Terry promised that the club are taking every measure necessary in order to punish the fans responsible for the racist behaviour in Paris on Tuesday night.
The Blues have already suspended five people involved, and Terry – who was found guilty of using racist slurs against QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in 2012 – said they he remains committed to kicking racism out of football entirely.
“This club stands against all forms of discrimination,” he said.
“Football is a sport for everyone, that is one of the main reasons we love it, and what happened on the Paris Metro on Tuesday was unacceptable.
“The club has reacted quickly to deal with the situation and will continue to do so.
“I would like to take this opportunity to express, on behalf of everyone at Chelsea Football Club, our disgust with regards to the incident that took place on the Paris Metro on Tuesday evening.
“We were appalled by what we saw and the club would like to apologise unreservedly to Mr Souleymane S for the behaviour of a group of individuals and their unforgivable actions towards him.
“We have been co-operating fully with the Metropolitan and Paris police forces in their ongoing investigation and will continue to do so.
“We have also been conducting our own investigation and all information from that is being shared with the police.
“It is only right that we complete our investigation to establish all the facts, but we have taken swift action based on the information received so far and should evidence show they were involved, the club will ban them for life.”
