Chelsea investigate suspected racist abuse on Son at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea FC are investigating a possible case of racist abuse on Son Heung-Min in Chelsea’s 2 – 2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

A post-match footage showed a supporter at a corner of the Shed End making a racist gesture at the Spurs winger and the Metropolitan Police are looking into the incident.

Son has been subject to racist abuse in the past, with Manchester United suspending three season-ticket holders in April 2021.

Son recounts facing racial abuse during his time in Germany and mentions how he took revenge by helping South Korea knockout the then World Champions in the 2018 World Cup.

“I moved to Germany when I was young and went through so many difficult moments,” Son said at an event in Seoul. “I faced a lot of racism. And while going through such a really difficult time, I had a lot of thoughts on my mind I should get my revenge one day.

“When people cry, I’d (usually) want to comfort them,” added Son, whose winner for South Korea ensured Germany finished bottom of their World Cup group in Russia, leaving many fans in tears. “But watching German people cry, (I felt) I was able to take revenge!”

On another note, both London clubs have until the end of today to respond after Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte were charged with improper conduct by the FA.
