Back in 2018, Raheem Sterling suffered racial abuse at Stamford Bridge. The fan who insulted the forward was identified and banned for life.
Thomas Tuchel says the incident did not affect Sterling’s decision to join Chelsea.
“I was not at the club, but whoever did this has surely no right to ever come to a football stadium,” Tuchel told The Telegraph about the episode.
“He should be held responsible for what he did. He is stupid enough to have done it and hold these kinds of opinions. From there, we don’t worry anymore.
“Raheem didn’t mention it. I had a long talk with him and he had no hesitation about coming. He didn’t mention it and I think he knows that one person does not reflect the opinion and the values of Chelsea.
“He is more than welcome in our group.”
