Chelsea have hit out after a video on social media showed one of their fans abusing Aston Villa midfielder with sectarian abuse. Chelsea said: "We are aware of a video circulating on social media showing an individual using abusive language of a sectarian nature in the crowd at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea Football Club finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour totally unacceptable and we condemn the language used. The club is working to identify the person involved and will take the strongest possible action against them."

 


Rovers Reach Chile Agreement

Chile have reached an agreement with Blackburn Rovers to have striker Ben Brereton play in two of their three international games in October. Brereton missed out on the recent internationals due to his club refusing to release him over quarantine concerns. Now the 22-year-old will play the first two games before returning to England to enter quarantine, reducing the number of games he would be forced to miss for Rovers.
