Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata, has said he wants fans of the club to stop chanting a song in his honour, which includes his anti-Jewish undertone.
The 24-year-old Spaniard who is hoping to add to his three goals against Arsenal on Sunday maintained that such songs did not set a good example to young children attending matches.
Chelsea had said they will take the “strongest possible action” against any of their supporters who used the anti-Jewish language which attracted attention in the 2-1 win at Leicester last Saturday.
Morata told the Daily Mail: “It’s clearly a sensitive issue.
“By all means, cheer me on, sing my name, sing songs about Chelsea but let’s avoid this anti-Jewish chant. The fans have been extremely welcoming to me and hopefully we can move forwards together now.
“There are many ways to enjoy yourself at a game and to cheer on your team or your favourite players.
“But I am clear. I am against any songs that will offend people on the basis of religion or race. We need to cut it out.
“Football is only a sport; let’s use it as a positive vehicle.
“It’s not just that but kids who follow us and who want to be like us one day and we need to set the best example to them in the stands.”
