Chelsea ban fan for life after finding he racially abused Raheem Sterling
• Club said lip-reading experts concluded abuse was racist
• Five fans given temporary bans for behaviour at same game
Chelsea have banned for life a fan they concluded had racially abused Raheem Sterling at Stamford Bridge last season and excluded five supporters for between one and two years over incidents at the same match.
Sterling was abused when he retrieved a ball in front of the Matthew Harding stand during Manchester City’s game at Chelsea last December.
