Jim White has shed light on the way in which the club’s ticket collection scheme helped them swiftly identify the culprits
Chelsea’s swift response when it emerged more of their supporters had shamed football has been widely applauded.
Ahead of the Europa League quarter-final against Slavia Prague, six travelling supporters filmed themselves singing ‘Salah is a bomber’ in a Czech pub.
Three of the fans were prevented from attending the match and talkSPORT host Jim White has explained how the club were able to identify them so quickly.
The video, which circulated on social media on Thursday afternoon, was picked up by Chelsea’s security team.
Ever since Blues fans prevented a black man from boarding a Paris train in 2017, the club have run collection points for European trips – where fans must present passports in return for their ticket.
The club were therefore able to spot the culprits from the video and void their tickets, before notifying local police.
Half of the six fans decided not to attend the match, but the other three were immediately turned away with Czech police ready on the scene.
And it has been revealed to talkSPORT that Chelsea have also identified the three men who didn’t show up – and efforts are being made to track them down.
