UEFA has opened proceedings against Chelsea after the alleged racist behaviour of their fans during their Europa League match against MOL Vidi in Hungary in December.
UEFA announced the news on Tuesday morning, based on “the report submitted by the UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector commissioned to conduct an investigation”.
During the game against Vidi, which was played at the Groupama Arena in Budapest, it was alleged a number of Chelsea fans sang a derogatory song about Tottenham featuring anti-Semitic language.
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck condemned the actions of “a few mindless individuals at some of our recent matches” and added the club “will not rest until we have eliminated all forms of discrimination from our club”.
