Chelsea Launch Probe After Photo Appears to Show Chelsea Fan Making a Monkey Gesture: The Daily EPL

Any apparent racial remark or gesture is under the microscope in the Premier League nowadays particularly after the events of the past 12 months involving numerous different incidents. And now, a new scandal has emerged after a Chelsea fan apparently made a monkey gesture at Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck in last night’s League Cup game.

Chelsea has launched an investigation, which will most probably result in a lifetime ban for the supporter, as well as a call by the club for fans to behave themselves (and for fellow fans to report similar incidents to the club).
