"Racist behavior interferes with the fight."
that was the gist of it repeatedly from stadionspeakeren on Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to the Premier League-it was between Tottenham and Chelsea.
Referee Anthony Taylor stopped the fight in the second half after Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger had turned to him.
Rudiger was involved in a situation, where tottenham's Son Heung-min got the red card for kicking out after just Rudiger. After a WAS browsing, the judge was convinced that the Son had breached the rules.
It was, apparently, each of the spectators up in the red field. Among other things, was thrown a full glass after the Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa. And apparently also racist songs and chants.
Then came the message with a call to stop the racist behaviour three times. According to Uefa rules, a battle to be suspended, if racist behavior continues after two warnings to the crowd.
"We are very concerned and aware of the problems with racism. It must be stopped. It is a problem not just in football, but also in general in society."
In spite of the repeated warnings, was the match played to the end. It ended with a 2-0 victory to Chelsea.
The dramatic London-lokalbrag had several attention-grabbing episodes.
in Addition to the red card to Son - and the racist songs - got Chelsea awarded a penalty kick after a too heavy and clumsy action from the Spurs-goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Also here it required, however, that judge Taylor was the situation for review by WAS team, before he could take the correct decision.
