The Spanish striker has spoken out against the song. Taking to Twitter to ask fans to stop singing his new song, he said: “
“People that use this kind of language against others always try to argue a grey area. There is no grey area. That language used was anti-Semitic.
“We have a zero tolerance policy towards it. If there is evidence that season ticket holders or members took part in that, and take part in it in the future, then we will take the strongest possible action against them, which includes bans.”
The chant has widely been condemmed by a large portion of the Chelsea fanbase, however, some are questioning if allegations of anti-Semitism are correct due to the continued use of similar languague in other Premier League stadiums.
