An investigation will be carried out by UEFA on the allegations that a Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi was racially abused during a Europa League clash at Dynamo Kiev.

The West London outfit had made it known that their player was abused by a small section of the opponent’s supporters and made it clear that they will be lodging a complaint to the Europa League organizers to have it investigated.

It is claimed that the matter was reported to the referee at the end of the game and Chelsea chiefs made the step to have it reported to UEFA.

However, UEFA have confirmed that they have received the complaints by the West London outfit chiefs and will begin an investigation into the matter. Therefore, the disciplinary and ehics inspector has been assigned to look into the complaints laid by the Blues team and will come up with a statement almost immediately.

Meanwhile, Callum Hudson-Odoi has been handed his debut for the England national team and has made a big mark by impressing the manager Gareth Southgate to prove that he deserves more of it in subsequent games.

Callum Hudson-Odoi will be hoping his performance with the England national team will help convince manager Maurizio Sarri into handing him more appearances at the Stamford Bridge.
