Chelsea ban season ticket holder

Chelsea have confirmed that the club has banned a season ticket holder who racially abused Son Heung-min.

The supporter made a racist gesture towards the South Korea international Son Heung-Min when Chelsea faced Tottenham last weekend at Stamford Bridge.

Son was subjected to racist abuse from a member of the crowd in last weekend’s game, and the club has since identified the supporter.

Chelsea have concluded an investigation by banning the season ticket holder.

“Following our statement this week on racist abuse at the Tottenham game last Sunday, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that it has identified and banned a season ticket holder indefinitely,” read a Chelsea statement.
