PARIS (AP) — A group of Chelsea fans have been filmed preventing a black man from boarding a subway train in France before the team’s Champions League game at Paris Saint-Germain.
After twice pushing the man away, the group — some of whom chanted “Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea” moments before Tuesday’s incident — then sing “we’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it.”
Another passenger, a black woman, then steps off the train.
In the video, the black man tries to board at Richelieu Drouout metro station in Paris and is pushed away. He then pushes back and says in French “Can I get on or what?” before again being shoved away.
Chelsea says “such behavior is abhorrent and has no place in football or society.”
