London, Mar.12 (ANI): Footballer Didier Drogbas claim that he was subjected to racist abuse in Turin, is to be probed by his club Chelsea.
Drogba has claimed that he was subjected to monkey chants from a small section of the home crowd that was supporting Juventus. UEFA has said that it is ready to throw the book at Juventus if the case is proven.
A Chelsea spokesman said last night: Our record against fighting racism is clear. At this stage, we do not have sufficient evidence to back up these claims. It would be up to UEFA to investigate them and we would do everything in our power to assist them. UEFA spokesman William Gaillard said he is awaiting reports from Spanish referee Alberto Undiano and the Euro delegate at the game.
If what is alleged is true, there will be an investigation, Gaillard said. (ANI)
