Police released photos of three Chelsea fans who involved in Paris Métro racist incident before Chelsea match with 1-1 draw with Paris St-Germain last Tuesday and still looking for them.
A Metropolitan police spokesman said the force had spoken to the men and was liaising with the French authorities. Police appealed for the public’s help in identifying the trio after releasing images taken at the Richelieu-Drouot Metro stop on 17 February.
It comes after an incident of alleged racism by Chelsea supporters on the Paris Metro, when footage showed a black man being pushed from a train.
Manager Jose Mourinho commented on the incident in Paris and said” it was a time to “celebrate this club’s diversity”, Chelsea captain John Terry, also said: “Football is a sport for everyone, that is one of the main reasons why we love it, and what happened on the Paris Metro was unacceptable.”
The alleged victim of the Metro incident, who has since been identified as 33-year-old Souleymane S, said the fans “should be locked up”. Souleymane told French newspaper Le Parisien: “I appreciate Mr Mourinho’s invitation, but I can’t get my head around being in a stadium at the moment.”
Hw also releases a press statement and said” “What happened has left me really afraid. I just want justice to be done, no more than that. I was a little bit hurt physically but in terms of morale I was hurt a lot. It has really affected my life. I can’t go back into the Metro, it makes me really afraid.”
