Chelsea took on Reading in their pre-season friendly at the Madejski Stadium and the game ended with an exciting scoreline of 4-3 in favour of the Blues.
While Frank Lampard looked pretty content after the games since the youngsters performed pretty well but the match was marred with controversies.
As per reports, Tottenham and West Ham fans were the targets of ugly chants from a section of Chelsea’s travelling fans.
The Blues fans used a derogatory term to describe the West Ham United fans and they also chose to target Tottenham’s Jewish connections.
These chants have been met with huge criticism from the Hammers as well as the Spurs fans with many people asking the culprits to be given stadium bans.
It is still unclear whether Chelsea will decide to take any action against the fans but their manager Frank Lampard has urged the fans to stop these abusive chants dedicated at their London rivals
“The support for the fans was incredible,” the Chelsea boss said(as reported by Goal).
“I didn’t hear the song in question, and of course if there’s a song in the modern day or any day that has offensive words I don’t want to hear that.
“That’s me saying that as a big Chelsea man who really appreciates the support and had it over the years.
“We don’t want songs with offensive words. If the fans could sing other songs then I’ll back that.
“We don’t want to hear that.
“The club are very clear with the work we do off the pitch about anything that’s offensive or prejudiced and we’ve made a big mark on that in modern years. We don’t want that.”
Next up, Chelsea will take on Salzburg in Austria following which they travel to Borussia Park to face Monchengladbach.
