Chelsea set to track down racist chant culprits

Chelsea Football Club continue their hunt to identify those responsible for inappropriate chants in last week’s Champions League clash in Genk.

The chants followed allegations of racial abuse involving Blues captain John Terry and QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. A small number of visiting Chelsea supporters made the chants directed at Ferdinand in support of their captain; however, singling out the perpetrators is proving difficult due to a lack of CCTV evidence.

Ron Gourlay, the club’s chief executive, told The Sun: “Because it’s a European game, we know the people who travelled. What we don’t know is who participated in any of the chants, which were just unacceptable. The CCTV is different in every stadium. What will happen if we can identify anyone? We will need to sit down and discuss that as a board.”
