Chelsea to ban fans

Chelsea have pledged to ban supporters found to have used anti-semitism language or behaviour during club's defeat to Watford.

Chelsea lost 1-4 to Watford on Monday at Vicarage Stadium and reports from jewishwebsite.com claim that the Blues supporter Jonathan Metliss was left 'disgusted' with the chanting he heard from fellow Blues fans at Vicarage Road. The club have launched an investigation in cooperation with Watford to ban anybody found guilty to serve as an example to the rest.

The club last week launched a 'Say No to Anti-Semitism' campaign as part of their own inclusion work through the Building Bridges initiative.

“Anti-Semitism has no place in our club, football or wider society,” a Chelsea spokesman said.
