Mourinho: I’m ashamed of racist fans

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is “ashamed” of the Chelsea fans who prevented a black man from boarding a Paris train before their Champions League tie on Tuesday. Amateur video showed a man being pushed from the Metro train while a group chants, “we’re racist, we’re racist and that’s the way we like it”.

Blues boss Mourinho said: “I felt ashamed when I found out but these supporters do not represent the club.”Chelsea say they are “appalled” and have apologised to the victim. The incident took place prior to Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Paris St-Germain on Tuesday evening and was filmed by British expatriate Paul Nolan.

Mourinho said: “The dressing room reacted as I did – with disappointment and they condemn the situation and support the gentleman involved and they feel ashamed but maybe we shouldn’t because these people involved do not belong to Chelsea Football Club.”
