CHELSEA fans were thrown into a fresh racism storm after they were filmed chanting about Liverpool’s Mo Salah being a “bomber”.
The clip shows a group of Blues supporters in a Prague bar singing “Salah is a bomber” to the tune of September by Earth, Wind and Fire.
Some Chelsea fans who watched the clip expressed their horror at the vile slur aimed at the former Stamford Bridge player and current Liverpool star, who is a Muslim from Egypt.
And anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out labelled it a disgrace, writing on Twitter: “It’s not on the terraces, but it’s still a disgrace. We don’t want fans like that anywhere near our game.
“We will be liasing with @ChelseaFC to ensure those involved are identified and punished swiftly and effectively.”
One Chelsea supporter wrote: “This is extremely disgusting and needs addressing by Chelsea.. they don’t represent the true fans of the club.”
Another said: “We’re not all like this. But all clubs have d***heads like this. I’m a Chelsea fan but I’m nothing like this so please don’t rope the likes of me and the other normal fans I know in with this lot.”
One comment read: “I agree that this is disgusting but that isn’t the entire Chelsea fanbase. There are fans out there that condemn this behaviour.”
‘SHAMEFUL AND PATHETIC’
A fellow user posted: “Can I just say this is representative of all Chelsea fans. I’m a Blue and I’m not like this nor do I condone it.”
Another said: “As a Chelsea fan myself, this is absolutely disgusting and fellow sensible fans do not represent or promote this part of the fanbase.
“It is shameful we have such w*****s as part of our so-called ‘fanbase’ who use such quotes to describe footballers. Pathetic.”
Maurizio Sarri’s side were in the Czech Republic for their Europa League clash against Slavia Prague, which they won 1-0 thanks to a late Marcos Alonso goal.
We have contacted Chelsea for comment and are awaiting a response.
Chelsea were investigated earlier this year after alleged racist incidents during their Europa League clash against MOL Vidi in Budapest – and were also shown holding up a flag with a Nazi symbol.
The charges were related to antisemitic chanting against Tottenham fans – but were eventually dropped.
