RACISM: UEFA charge Roma over 'monkey chants' toward Rudiger

Serie A side, AS Roma have been charged by Uefa after some of their fans were heard making “monkey chants” towards Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

The incident occurred in Wednesday’s Champions League Group C tie which ended 3-3 at Stamford Bridge.

The 24-year-old Rudiger, who moved to Chelsea from Roma in the summer, came on as a 77th-minute substitute during the game.

Recall that before the German international moved to England for an initial £29m, he said racism at football matches was a “serious issue” in Italy.

The case will be dealt with by Uefa’s control, ethics and disciplinary body on 16 November.
