Chelsea fans use antisemitic chant to glorify player after scoring a goal

But the language in that song is not acceptable at all.

"Chelsea Football Club finds all forms of discrimination abhorrent and the language that was used in that song the other night we find totally unacceptable", said head of communications Steve Atkins.

Newly signed Chelsea soccer player Alvaro Morata's name was entangled in antisemitic chants by Chelsea fans after scoring a goal against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

After the Spain worldwide scored his third goal of the season in a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, sections of the Chelsea following could be heard singing: "Alvaro, Alvaro".

"People that use this kind of language against others always try to argue a grey area". And we will support the police in anything they need us to do, assist their enquiries, and we will also support criminal prosecutions of such behaviour and activity. That language used was anti-Semitic. There is no grey area. "We have a zero tolerance towards it".

Morata found the net for the third time, since joining from Real Madrid against the former Premier League champions.

Morata took to Twitter after the game to express his gratitude for the support of his fans, and to request that they "please respect everyone!"

He added that the club is telling supporters neither the Spaniard or Chelsea want anything to do with the chant.

"He is scoring goals that are winning games so I am really happy for him and for the club as well", Drogba told Sky Sports News.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Chelsea's Champions League opener against Azerbaijani side Qarabag on Tuesday, manager Antonio Conte backed the club's stance. We must pay great attention.
