Sarri: Tackling racism is a fight against "stupid people"

Maurizio Sarri says tackling racism is a "fight against stupid people" following further allegations of racist chanting by Chelsea fans during the 2-1 win at Watford.

A minority of the away end were reported to have been heard shouting discriminatory remarks during the Boxing Day clash at Vicarage Road.
It follows other incidents from some Blues supporters in December, with Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling allegedly being targeted by racist abuse at Stamford Bridge while UEFA is investigating alleged anti-Semitic chanting during a Europa League game in Hungary.
Blues manager Sarri believes racism remains a problem in society and is not confined to supporters of his club.
“First of all I want to speak with my club, second I don't want to generalize because 99 per cent our fans are really wonderful,” replied Sarri when asked about the issue.
“In every community, I think there are some stupids.
“And so altogether we have to fight against the stupid people but not against the Chelsea fans.”
