Chelsea have banned their supporter for racially abusing Son Heung-min

LONDON (AP) — Chelsea have banned a season-ticket holder indefinitely for racially abusing Son Heung-min during a Premier League game against Tottenham, the club said Saturday.

Son, the South Korean forward, was abused by a member of the crowd at Stamford Bridge in last Sunday’s 2-2 draw.

Chelsea ended the investigation by issuing a ban.

Chelsea have already handed out life bans to supporters found guilty of racial abuse at their home ground.

The Blues carried out their latest initiative in a long-running “no hate” campaign ahead of Sunday’s game, taking steps to make it easier for fans to report alleged abuse.

The back of every seat at Stamford Bridge now has instructions on how to report incidents of abuse, either via text message or a barcode on a smartphone.

Chelsea believes that identifying a specific seat from which an incident occurs or is reported increases the chances of an individual being apprehended.
