Olivier Giround has condemned the actions of Chelsea fans involved in a video that showed racist chanting being directed towards former player and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
The Blues stuttered to 1-0 win over Slavia Prague in the first-leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday night, although the victory was overshadowed by events prior to kick-off.
A video emerged of a group of fans singing a racist song about former player Salah, with those fans subsequently refused entry for the game in Prague, with both Chelsea and Liverpool, who face one another in the Premier League on Sunday, releasing statements in response.
The 32-year-old said: "
RE: Salah racism video doing the rounds: Chelsea's away security team are trying to prevent any individuals in the video from entering the stadium. A sign of things to come for these individuals.— Nizaar Kinsella (@NizaarKinsella) April 11, 2019
