Chelsea promise action after alleged anti-Semitic chanting during Europa League match

Maurizio Sarri wants his side to kick on from their win over champions Manchester City

Chelsea fans have been accused of racist chanting in their Europa League draw away at Vidi on Thursday night. "It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities", the statement read.

"We have stated this loud and clear on many occasions from the owner, the board, coaches and players".

Chelsea earlier promised to take the "strongest possible action" against any supporters found to have sung an anti-Semitic chant in Budapest.

"It goes to the people that make the decisions, the people that make the money - they are the ones saying, "We can't have him saying that because look at the impact it will have on this football club".

He said newspapers are helping to "fuel racism" by the ways in which they portray young black footballers.

Morata, 26, moved to Chelsea from Real Madrid for £60 million in July 2017 but has endured an indifferent spell in the capital city. "Of course, I play the cups and in the Europa League, I'm not someone who will complain or not do my best, I will always put my face down and work when I'm needed".

The initiative is supported by the club's owner, Roman Abramovich.

Fabregas admits he would have no problem with Chelsea's issues being used to address a wider issue regarding racism across Europe.

Chelsea banned four supporters this week pending a police investigation into alleged racial abuse of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling.

"If you buy Jorginho and have (Cesc) Fabregas, then I think you have to play 4-3-3", Sarri said.

The Blues started the season with five successive Premier League victories but Sarri's side have only managed to win five of the last 11 outings.

Former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri praised his old club for their stance.

Spanish La Liga giants Sevilla are the newest club to enter the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez ahead of the upcoming transfer market in January.
