Even though Chelsea’s 1rst leg Champions League match against PSG was played over one week ago, it’s still one of the main topic’s of discussion of fans, managers and analysts of the sport. It was clear that the French side deserved to secure the victory but had to settle with a final score of 1-1.
There was an incident that occurred even before the match had started which is reaching headlines all over the world even in places where football is not usually a subject of debate and talk. A video which display a group of Chelsea fans blocking the pathway for a black man has been making it’s way everywhere of websites all over the world and now the victim of this incident has spoken up and stated that he blames Chelsea FC for this event that happened in an underground train on the Paris Metro.
SouleymaneSylla was the victim of this incident and he was recently interviewed by BBC as he took the chance to express his thoughts about what occurred to him. Sylla said: “I felt truly wounded to the bottom of my heart that I really couldn’t believe it. Of course it’s Chelsea’s responsibility. It’s their supporters.”We’re in 2015 aren’t we and we’re in France. We’re in a civilized country and when you are in a civilized country, there are certain things you can’t do.
“The fans didn’t say Paris, they said Chelsea. Chelsea should call my lawyer. And they haven’t done that yet. It’s their supporters. The director general of PSG has called my lawyer but Chelsea haven’t contacted my lawyer.”Sylla said.
Jose Mourinho has already sent his apologies to SouleymaneSylla and the Premier League club has suspended 5 fans that they managed to identify in the video as they will not be able to enter Stamford Bridge in their lifetime.
