Chelsea condemn supporters chants

Chelsea have been quick to condemn the actions of their supporters who last night gave their support to defender John Terry by chanting about Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.

Ferdinand believed Terry to have racially abused him when the two teams met at Loftus Road, and he is now taking action against the England captain.

A spokesperson for Chelsea is quoted by BBC Sport as distancing the club from the fan’s behaviour: “The chanting was wholly inappropriate and we don’t condone it.” Also manager Andre Villas-Boas was asked for his thoughts on the fan’s actions in Genk last night, but could only muster a claim that he did not hear the chanting as he was concentrating on the game.

The Metropolitan Police launched a formal investigation yesterday into the race allegations made by Ferdinand, it is unclear whether Terry or the fans will face action.
