Chelsea warn of racist abuse in Napoli


Bookmark and Share

By Bryan Waters

Tuesday 21 February 2012

Chelsea have stated that they will complain to UEFA if any of their players suffer racist abuse against Napoli in the second round first leg of the Champions League, Sky Sports reports.


Members of the squad were subjected to monkey chants when they arrived at the Grande Albergo Vesuvio hotel. Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge seemed to be earmarked, which will be upsetting for the England striker after reports of racial abuse from a Chelsea fan in the Champions League group game against Genk.


Blues officials were made of the abuse and have confirmed they will take issues to UEFA, stating: 'Chelsea football club finds any form of discriminatory behaviour totally abhorrent and we believe it has no place in society whatsoever. If any members of our team or staff are subjected to racist abuse, we would find that wholly unacceptable and it would be reflected in our conversations with UEFA'.


Napoli officials have also made a move to stop their fans from abusing the Chelsea fans, which they fear could incite crowd trouble. The Italian side are renowned for having dangerous fans, who are reportedly looking to use fire crackers and flares to create a hostile atmosphere.


A Napoli statement said: 'SSC Napoli invites its supporters to respect the rules of safety, in line with Uefa rules. Napoli invites its supporters not to use flares or fireworks, not to occupy the stairs and any other escape ways, not to occupy the third tier, which is closed to the public.'
