Football fan banned for three years

A Chelsea fan has been banned from football matches for three years after being ejected from their Premier League game against Brighton for shouting homophobic abuse.

The 20-year-old man pleaded guilty to the offence of using threatening, abusive or insulting words during Chelsea’s 2-1 win at Brighton’s Amex Stadium on December 16. As a result, the fan has been banned and fined 965 ($1219). The fan ban is the latest worrying incident involving Chelsea supporters this season.

A Chelsea fan was accused of shouting racist abuse at Manchester City star Raheem Sterling during the Blues’ 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri admitted he was frustrated by the “stupid” people who were tarnishing his club’s reputation after repeated complaints about fans singing an anti-semitic chant about Tottenham supporters
