Antonio Rudiger has taken to twitter to talk about the alleged racist incident that marred a brilliant 2-0 Chelsea victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium yesterday afternoon.

He said: “It is really sad to see racism again at a football match, but I think it’s very important to talk about it in public. If not, it will be forgotten again in a couple of days (as always).

Chelsea’s Willian scores his side’s second goal of the game from the penalty spot during the Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London.

“I don’t want to involve Tottenham as an entire club into this situation as I know that just a couple of idiots were the offenders. I got a lot of supportive messages on social media from Spurs fans as well in the last hours – thank you a lot for this.

“I really hope that the offenders will be found and punished soon, and in such a modern football ground like the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with dozens of TV and security cameras, it must be possible to find and subsequently punish them.

“If not, then there must have been witnesses in the stadium who saw and heard the incident. It’s just such a shame that racism still exists in 2019. When will this nonsense stop?
