Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has recently written an open letter to fans condemning the actions of”a few dumb individuals”.

The club also have condemned fans who staged an anti semitic chant during last week’s Europa League tie with MOL Vidi.

Buck said the actions were”unacceptable” and”undesirable”.

“A deeply disagreeable but vocal minority which won’t unite in the 21st century has shamed the excellent majority of our acceptable, well behaved fans,” he added.

“Within the previous weeks, months and indeed years, I’ve spoken at length to various Chelsea fans and supporter classes, all of whom have been in full understanding that the type of behavior we’ve witnessed is entirely unacceptable, hurtful and does not represent the club or the overwhelming bulk of those that follow our teams home and away.”

A week ago, Chelsea suspended four fans from games as the research to the alleged racial abuse of Sterling occurs.

Buck greeted Blues fans at the turnstiles until Sunday’s Premier League win at Brighton, also in his letter said the club will”be at the jolt that threatens to overshadow the wonderful job this club will do for equality and inclusion”.

“Clearlythere remains a way to be on this journey, but we won’t rest until we’ve eliminated a number of discrimination against our club,” Buck explained.

“We will keep working along side our fans, anti-discrimination organisations and soccer governments to produce an environment where everyone feels welcome and valued. This is not the club for you personally if you do not share these values.

“We shouldn’t allow a small minority of fans to create additional embarrassment upon usand will continue to choose the strongest possible actions .

“We are determined to win this conflict, but we want the backing and actions of the that share the fundamentals of the terrific club.”
