But it’s not alleged he was involved…
A wealthy, financial sector worker has been identified as amongst the Chelsea fans who were present during a vile, racist assault on a Paris Metro train.
The Sun newspaper identifies one of the filmed men inside the carriage as ex-public schoolboy Josh Parsons from Dorking, Surrey.
It is not alleged that the 21 year old was involved in the incident but now he has been identified it is hoped he could be a key witness from aboard the train and could potentially help police find the culprits of the sick chants and attack.
After the incident became public, Parsons, who was a former pupil at £30,000-a-year public school and now works for Business and Commercial Finance Club in central London, removed references on his social media profiles that he supports Chelsea.
Last night, a 33-year-old Frenchman came forward as the victim of the racism, identifying himself as Souleymane S, a father of three.
There was almost unanimous condemnation of the incident in the world of football when the video emerged of fans of the west London club shoving Souleymane off a Paris train he was attempting to board before chanting: “We’re racist and that’s the way we like it”.
