Premier League club, Chelsea have banned a season ticket holder indefinitely following an incident of racist abuse aimed towards Son Heung-min during the Blues’ 2-2 Premier League draw with Tottenham on Sunday August 14.
South Korea forward Son was subjected to abuse from a Chelsea fan in the top-flight London derby.
Now, Chelsea have concluded an investigation by banning the season ticket holder.
‘Following our statement this week on racist abuse at the Tottenham game last Sunday, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that it has identified and banned a season ticket holder indefinitely,’ read a Chelsea statement.
‘Chelsea Football Club finds any form of discriminatory behaviour totally abhorrent. It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities,’ read a Chelsea statement issued earlier this week.
‘Chelsea FC has consistently made its zero tolerance position on discriminatory behaviour very clear, yet there are still idiots like this that attach themselves to this club as so-called ‘fans’, which shames Chelsea FC, our coaches, players, staff and our true supporters.
‘We are investigating this incident and, if identified, this individual will face the strongest action from the club.’
