Premier League: Chelsea fans banned following Paris Metro incident


Four Chelsea fans have been given banning orders following the incident on a Paris Metro train the night of the club's Champions League clash with PSG.

The four were accused of chanting "we're racist, we're racist, and that's the way we like it" as a black man, Souleymane Sylla, was pushed off a Paris Metro service he was attempting to board.

Richard Barklie, 50, William Simpson, 26, and Josh Parsons, 21, were banned from attending football matches for four years as district judge Gareth Branston made his ruling at Stratford Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Jordan Munday, 20, was given a three-year banning order.

The club sent an apology to Mr Sylla, and even invited him to their next home game as a guest of the club, an offer which he refused.
