Brentford investigating reports of fans involved in discriminatory chanting on train after Liverpool game | Soccer News
Brentford is investigating reports that a group of supporters were involved in discriminatory chanting on a train returning to London after their match at Liverpool on Sunday.
Mas Patel, a Labor councilor in the London Borough of Newham, flagged the offensive chants on his Twitter page.
Mr Patel said: “So I call the racist and homophobic chants and they ask me to leave the car. OK, it’s for my safety, I know. They picked up my tweets and faced me.
“Anyway, they all saw how upset I was and thanks to the fan who stood up for me. Total respect.”
A statement from Brentford on Monday read: “We condemn any abusive or discriminatory behavior that has taken place. We will investigate and act on these horrific reports.
“We are a club for everyone. Discrimination has no place at Brentford FC.”
Brentford lost the match at Anfield 3-0, with goals from Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Takumi Minamino lifting Liverpool into second place in the Premier League.
Brentford have lost four of their last five league games and sit 14th, 10 points above the relegation zone.
