"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.
"Rudiger came to me and told me that he heard racist songs against him, so I said to the judge," told the Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta after the match:
"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.
