Price of racism: Chelsea fans face up to three years in jail

Chelsea today called on its own supporters to turn in a gang of football fans filmed repeatedly pushing a black man off a train and chanting: ‘We’re racist and that’s the way we like it’.

Police in Britain and France are also hunting for the men seen abusing the victim at Richelieu-Drouot station on the Paris Metro last night.

They face up to three years in prison if they are caught before they leave France and Scotland Yard has said its officers are also studying the film and will consider banning orders for those involved.

The shocking footage shows the gang of white men refusing to let the black man on board despite there being enough space in the carriage.

The victim, who was not wearing any club colours, then remonstrates with the fans, asking them to let him on and pointing at a space, but the gang block the door and push him off again when he tries to board for the second time.

Another black passenger then walks off the train in disgust as the large group of fans chant: ‘We’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it, we like it, we like it.’
