Police investigating post-League Cup racist behavior claims against Chelsea fans

1 Comment

Chelsea fans on a train from London to Manchester have been accused of more racist behavior following the club’s 2-0 League Cup final win over Tottenham on Sunday.

The incident follows another one in Paris which sparked tremendous fallout, as a man identified as Souleymane Sylla was prohibited from boarding a train in France as Blues supporters chanted at him, “We’re racist and that’s the way we like it.”

That became a springboard for another tale. And now this, despite the Chelsea community widely protesting the actions of the few.

From the BBC:

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “Shortly after 22:30 GMT, officers were called to meet a London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly train at Stoke, following reports of racist and abusive behaviour by a number of passengers, said to be football fans.

“Colleagues from Staffordshire Police also attended. We have spoken to two witnesses, and investigations continue.”
