Chelsea probe fan racism allegation

Brought to you by William Hill


Chelsea have been forced to condemn more allegations of racism by their own fans following claims one of them called striker Daniel Sturridge a "monkey".

The alleged incident occurred during the Blues' 1-1 Champions League draw at Genk two weeks ago, the same game in which some of their travelling support abused QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

The club immediately launched an inquiry in a bid to identify those heard to chant, "Anton Ferdinand, you know what you are", in apparent support for Chelsea captain John Terry, who is being investigated by police and the Football Association over claims he used a racial slur against Ferdinand.
