London: Four Chelsea supporters involved in a racist incident in the Paris subway have been given banning orders of up to five years.
Richard Barklie, a former police officer in Northern Ireland who now works as a human rights activist, was banned from attending football matches in Britain and abroad for five years. William Simpson and Josh Parsons were also banned for five years, while Jordan Munday was banned for three years.
The incident occurred in February, when Souleymane Sylla was pushed off a train by supporters who were filmed in a video singing "we're racist, we're racist, and that's the way we like it."
It occurred before Chelsea played a Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain.
