UEFA charges Chelsea for anti-Semitic chants by fans

January 15, 2019

NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA has charged Chelsea for anti-Semitic chants by fans at a Europa League game last month.

Chelsea described the chants, directed at London rival Tottenham, as “abhorrent” hours after the 2-2 draw at Hungarian club Vidi.

Lacking enough evidence from officials at the game, UEFA appointed a disciplinary inspector to investigate the incident.

UEFA says “disciplinary proceedings have been instigated” and a charge of “racist behavior” will be judged on Feb. 28.

Chelsea next plays Europa League games on Feb. 14 and 21 against Malmo.
