It has been established that West London outfit Chelsea will not face any punishment after being charged with anti-semitic chanting during a Europa League game against Hungarian side Vidi in December.

Some Chelsea fans were accused of singing a derogatory song about Tottenham which had use of anti-Semitic languages against the rule.

Although the club had strongly warned the fans against such act with the club chairman Bruce Buck claiming that the club will not rest until all forms of discriminations are eliminated from the club.

But following the investigations and the reply to the charge, UEFA in a statement said they have decided to close the disciplinary proceedings against the West London outfit.

However, Belgium international Eden Hazard is confident that his team can eradicate all forms of discrimination in football, noting that it is a major issue that is not peculiar to England alone.

Eden Hazard, therefore, stated that the media can be used as a tool for eradicating it by speaking against it so as to make the players more comfortable to play.

However, Hazard is close to an exit door at the Stamford Bridge and might not be affected by any punishment as he would already be on his way to Real Madrid.
