English racist football hooligans caught on video


This 18 February 2015 video, recorded in France, says about itself:

Amateur footage shows Chelsea football fans preventing a black man from boarding a Paris metro train shortly before the Champions League fixture between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday. The unidentified passenger attempts to squeeze on to the train, only to be pushed forcefully back on to the platform at the Richelieu-Drouot station. The fans then chant: ‘We’re racist, we’re racist and that’s the way we like it’.

Racist Chelsea fans prevent black man boarding Paris metro train

Chelsea has announced it will ban fans filmed pushing a black metro passenger off of a train in Paris yesterday.

The sickening moment showed the fans repeatedly stopping the man boarding the train before breaking out into a racist song.

The shocking footage, published by the Guardian, was recorded in the city last night as the Blues drew 1-1 in their Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain.

In it, the passenger can be seen pushed off the train as he looks to board the carriage.

Fans then break out into a chant of “We’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it”.

Chelsea condemned the actions of those involved through a statement published hours after the incident took place, saying it will issue bans to any of its fans found to have been a part of this.

From daily The Guardian in Britain:

Chelsea condemn fans who pushed black man off Paris Métro

• Video footage shows fans manhandling man on train before PSG game
• Supporters chant: ‘We’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it’
• Chelsea vow to ban any season-ticket holders or members involved

Chelsea have strongly condemned a group of their supporters who have been caught on video singing a racist song and preventing a black man from boarding the Paris Métro.

The footage, obtained exclusively by the Guardian, shows the man repeatedly trying to squeeze on to a busy train only to be forcefully shoved out of the door and back on to the platform at the Richelieu – Drouot station before Chelsea’s Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes. The fans on the train are then heard chanting a song that appears to be celebrating what has just happened and includes the line: “We’re racist, we’re racist and that’s the way we like it” while a black woman is standing directly in front of them.

Chelsea football club urges fans to help find racists seen in Paris Métro footage: here.
