Eden Hazard’s Message To Fans | Chelsea & Tottenham’s Fans To Respect Each Other and behave during Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Wembley
Tottenham and Chelsea have cautioned fans to be orderly in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup semi-final 1st leg at Wembley after fresh incidents of prejudiced behaviour.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri called for the followers to motivate and encourage their own teams, rather than focus their energies negatively and taunting the opposition.
Chelsea fans have been in focus in recent weeks following a number of high-profile events, including an insulting chant about Spurs followers that featured alleged anti-Semitic verbal exchanges at a Europa League game in Hungary last month.
One Spurs fan was barred and penalized for flinging a banana skin at Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the North London Derby late last year.
Chelsea have assumed a zero leniency policy to prejudiced behaviour, with the message repeated ahead of the fixture, following a consultation with the Metropolitan Police and fans’ representatives from both clubs.
Tuesday night’s semi-final game is a total sell out with the capacity at Wembley capped at 51,000. Chelsea and Tottenham endorsed a text service to make it easy for the right minded fans to report anti-social behaviour.
However, the waters are muddied by the known fact that Tottenham supporters use the Y-word at will at matches.
Despite the inevitable tense situation surrounding the fans the match up is going to be a thrilling one.
