UEFA closes Chelsea anti-Semitic chants case; fines Red Star
NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA has ended an investigation into anti-Semitic chants by Chelsea fans at a Europa League game that the club apologized for.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel closed the case Thursday, meaning Chelsea will not face any sanction over a charge of “racist behavior.”
The chant was heard at a group-stage game against Vidi in Hungary in December. Chelsea quickly condemned the behavior saying it is “abhorrent to this club.”
The Serbian champion had been fined 25,000 euros ($28,500) for illicit chants when the teams played in Paris in October.
