Daniel Sturridge has been subjected to a racial slur from one of his own supporters, reports the Daily
The alleged remark was made during Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Genk. This prompted a disgusted fellow Chelsea fan to send an email to the club’s chief executive Ron Gourlay in protest.
At the same match, inappropriate chants were made aimed at Queen Park Rangers’ Anton Ferdinand, chants in which the accused fan was also said to have contributed.
A spokesman for the West London club has stated: “We have had a new complaint from a fan that we are taking very seriously indeed. We are carrying out an immediate investigation led by our head of security that is likely to involve the police as well. We will not tolerate any form of racism and have encouraged our supporters to help identify those responsible and we will track them down.”
