Chelsea plead fans against singing anti-Semitic song involving new signing Alvaro Morata

Show Grid

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hailed Alvaro Morata and believes Chelsea are already benefiting from the former Real Madrid striker, who penned a five-year contract in a club-record £67m deal.

In fairness, Morata himself wasted little time in politely requesting that the chant be struck from the Chelsea hymn sheet with immediate effect...

"There is no place for such disgusting chants at football matches and in wider society", read a statement from the organisation "Kick It Out welcomes the clear statement by Chelsea FC, deploring the chants and asking all supporters to cease repeating the chant".

"We've spoken to Alvaro after the game".

"The club and the players appreciate the fans' passionate support away from home".

The chant has widely been condemmed by a large portion of the Chelsea fanbase, however, some are questioning if allegations of anti-Semitism are correct due to the continued use of similar languague in other Premier League stadiums. That language used was anti-Semitic. That language used was anti-Semitic and we have a zero tolerance policy towards it. If there is evidence that season ticket holders or members took part in that, and take part in it in the future, then we will take the strongest possible action against them, which includes bans.

"People should know that the police will be investigating and they will investigate all future such episodes, and we will support the police in anything that they do, assist their enquiries, and we will also support criminal prosecution of such behaviour and activity".

'We must be clear on this because it has to stop'.

"I don't think Antonio was aware of the song so if I can just speak on behalf of the club", Atkins said.

'It was a hard game so you have to be happy with the result'.
