Unacceptable: The Chelsea Fan (Circled) Appears To Make A Monkey Gesture Towards Welbeck After The Striker Mis-controls The Ball

A Chelsea fan was pictured in the stands apparently directing a ‘monkey’ gesture at Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck which has prompted the Stamford Bridge side to launch an investigation.

A Chelsea spokesman said: “Chelsea Football Club can confirm we are investigating an incident involving a member of the crowd at last night’s game against Manchester United.

“The club will be examining all available footage and asks anyone who can identify the individual to contact the club.

“Chelsea FC is committed to removing all forms of discrimination and if we have sufficient evidence we will take the strongest possible action, including supporting criminal prosecution.”

Meanwhile this is as John Mikel Obi has consistently told Chelsea officials that he wanted to pursue the case against Clattenburg after the official allegedly told him to ‘shut it, monkey’ during Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday.

  • Wish all my black brothers playing abroad in any club would embark on a protest to show resentment on this incessant racsist attacks. If not for greener pasture non of these boys would go to always being humiliated. And if only these Clubs knows that without the black players, their league is nothing. They are used and ridiculed. Can rascism ever be totally eradicated in the world? NO.
