News has broken this morning that Chelsea are to be the subject of UEFA disciplinary proceedings.
The proceedings relate to the racist chanting, albeit by a minority of supporters, during our recent 2-2 draw, in Hungary, in the Europa League fixture against MOL Vidi.
Chelsea will learn their fate at UEFA’s next scheduled meeting on 28 February 2019.
If found guilty, Chelsea could be fined or even be forced to close part of Stamford Bridge for a forthcoming European fixture.
Although here at Vital Chelsea, we’re not condoning what went on, we still feel the club have been harshly treated.
The media eye focussed on our club after an incident involving Raheem Sterling, in the Premier League fixture against Manchester City.
Thrown into the public eye for all the wrong reasons, we believe the club has done its utmost to prevent any further re-occurrences and has reiterated its stance, on more than one occasion, when it comes to such unacceptable racist chanting.
A typical example that perfectly illustrates that point is the fact that our CEO, Bruce Buck, stood outside the turnstiles, at the AMEX Stadium, pleading with the travelling support to cease chanting any songs that carry racist tones.
But, that doesn’t appear to have cut the mustard with UEFA who, it would seem, are intent on having their pound of flesh.
