Chelsea unable to take action against alleged racist abuse of Sturridge

Chelsea have confirmed they are unable to prove one of their own fans racially abused Daniel Sturridge, The Press Association reports.

During the 1-1 draw with Genk in the Champions League last month, a complaint was made to the club over the actions of a fan in the exclusive section at the Cristal Arena. The 16 supporters the club have interviewed were unable to back up the accusation and the club have had to halt the complaint where it stands.

A club spokesman said: ‘In spite of the very lengthy enquiries, the evidence did not identify conclusively any individual as being responsible for making the comments. No other witness reported having heard the alleged comments or anything similar. In the absence of clear evidence, it is not possible to reach any conclusion on which to pursue the complaint further. For these reasons, the club is unable to take any further action’.

Sturridge has been one of the club’s standout performers so far this season with eight goals to his name. He is expected to start for Andre Villas-Boas when the Blues host Manchester City on Monday night.
