Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has criticised a “stupid” minority of the club’s fans after fresh allegations of racist chanting were made against their fans in the victory over Watford.
A small minority of Chelsea supporters are reported to have engaged in racist chanting during the 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road on Boxing Day.
When asked if he witnessed the alleged racist chanting in their match against Watford, Sarri said: “I didn’t hear anything.
“Firstly I want to speak with the club, secondly I don’t want to generalise.
“For the 99 per cent our fans are really very good, wonderful. Then, in every community, there are some stupid [people].
“All together we have to fight against the stupid people, but not against the Chelsea fans.”
Chelsea are currently under investigation by UEFA after a section of supporters were accused of singing a derogatory chant about Tottenham fans, which features anti-Semitic language, during the Europa League game with Vidi.
