Condemning the disrespectful comments towards midfielder Conor Gallagher in relation to a video involving him and a mascot, Chelsea has expressed its discontent.

During their 2-2 draw with Burnley on Saturday, the Blues’ captain inadvertently overlooked the young mascot extending his hand in the tunnel before the match.

Following this incident, Gallagher faced a stream of offensive remarks on social platforms, with allegations of racism due to the child’s ethnicity.

Responding to the escalating situation, the club has issued a formal statement.

The club’s statement reads, “The circulation of a video clip from Saturday’s game against Burnley on social media has been significantly misrepresented.

“The inappropriate level of criticism and damaging comments aimed at Conor Gallagher is intolerable.

“We take pride in being an inclusive and diverse club that promotes a sense of belonging for individuals from all backgrounds and communities.”
