As per the reports, five Chelsea football fans have been suspended for five years from any football matches. The reason for this is because of a racism incident that took place in Paris sometime in February. The Chelsea FC club has seen a lot of fan moments, but this one was one of the darkest.
The Main Enforcers Of The Incident- Chelsea Football Fans
The incident involved a black Frenchman, who was heaved continuously off from a metro carriage ahead of Championship league match involving Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. The men involved were five Chelsea football fans Josh Parsons, William Simpson, Jordan Munday, and former London police officer Richard Barklie. As the news reported, the black commuter was pushed by the five men and abused verbally as well. The sign of racism reached the top priority among both fan groups and social activists.
This is not the first season that the team has seen such raged behavior by Chelsea fans. And this is common for all football clubs in the world. In sports premier, the supporters often cross their limits in the name of showing support to the players and the game. And for sure such experiences by Chelsea football fans are not the best for the team.
The Charges Which Were Applied:
In regards to the incident that took place, district judge of the Stratford magistrate court Gareth Branston commented that it was a highly uncivilized and unacceptable behavior. He also said that the former police officer, along with Josh Parson, the former finance worker, was found to be the primary enforcers of this racist abuse. Barklie, however, denied the allegations saying that there no such pushing involved and blamed the Frenchman for boarding a jam-packed train. Jordan Munday, the fourth convict who was alleged for joining the racist chants, received a ban of three years, whereas Dean Callis, the fifth convict, was banned from his role for five years.
All these incidents were captured on a British expatriate phone and received universal criticism forcing Chelsea to ban all those five enthusiasts from the Stamford Bridge.
