Chelsea football fans convicted of racist violence in Paris
Four men given suspended prison sentences and ordered to pay €10,000 to black commuter pushed off Métro carriage
Four #Chelsea #football fans have been convicted of racist violence and given suspended prison sentences after a black commuter was pushed off a Paris Métro carriage in Paris while fans chanted: “We’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it.”
The incident in February 2015 before a game between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain was filmed by a British man, Paul Nolan, and the footage was published by the Guardian. It sparked an outcry over racism in #sport, with politicians and the then French and British prime ministers condemning the attack.
