Manchester United responds to Chelsea’s action against United fans at Stamford Bridge

The club have responded to the action taken by rivals Chelsea over homophobic chants made by a large number of United fans. The said fans were prevented from entering the stadium.

The club condemned their actions and also reiterated on our values.

“Manchester United has a long-standing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, embodied through our AllRedAllEqual initiative,” a club spokesman said.

“We were the first club to sign up to the TeamPride coalition and continue to collaborate with Stonewall and other anti-discriminatory organisations in this area.

“Our fans were vocal as always in their support for the team on Monday night and we appreciate that loyal backing. However, this song directed against Chelsea FC – or any other club – by some of our fans runs counter to our values.

“We will continue to engage in campaigns to raise awareness and fight discrimination in all forms.”
