    A video of Blues supporters in Prague singing about the Egyptian forward ahead of their Europa League quarter-final first leg against Slavia Prague went viral on social media.

    Chelsea fans were filmed apparently singing “Salah is a bomber” in the video, with fans condemning the Islamophobic song.

    Liverpool have called for action in a statement released after the incident: “The video circulating online, showing vile discriminatory chants being aimed at one of our players, is dangerous and disturbing.

    "Already this season, we have seen repulsive discriminatory abuse inside stadiums in England, Europe and across the world; abuse that was captured on devices and put into the public domain.


    "We have also witnessed numerous hateful attacks on social media.

    "This behaviour needs to be called out for what it is – unadulterated bigotry. Liverpool Football Club believes it is the responsibility of those in positions of authority, following proper process, to act urgently to identify and then punish anyone committing a hate crime.

    "There is no place for this behaviour in football, there is no place for it in society. A crime of this nature has more victims than any individual it is aimed at and, as such, collective and decisive action is needed to address it."

    Chelsea also announced their fans seen abusing their former player were 'embarrassing'.

    "Chelsea FC finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour abhorrent and where there is clear evidence of Chelsea season ticket holders or members involved in such behaviour, we will take the strongest possible action against them.

    "Such individuals are an embarrassment to the vast majority of Chelsea supporters who won’t tolerate them in their club."
