Mourinho insisted these so called fans do not represent the club, and has emphatically distanced himself and the club from the incident, which happened after the Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

‘They are not Chelsea,” he told media in a press-conference.

“Chelsea is the owner, the board, the players, the staff that works here, but not these individuals.

“We would welcome the victim (at Stamford Bridge) and show what Chelsea really is about.

“I am ashamed, but I am not connected to these people.

“I felt ashamed when I heard what happened, but maybe we shouldn’t. I am still a proud Chelsea Football Club manager, but I am not connected to these people.”

The Portuguese also revealed that the players share the same sentiment and club owner Roman Abramovich was also ‘disgusted’ by the actions.

“The reaction of the players is the same reaction as of the rest of the club, with disappointment,” Mourinho added.

“We have twelve or thirteen players with African roots and connections, and our dressing room was always a dressing room which respects equality.

“We have zero tolerance and no space for these people.”
