More information about Chelsea fan Colin Wing
Chelsea have yet to issue a banning order to Colin Wing.
Colin Wing has been identified as the Blues supporter who racially abused Man City’s Raheem Sterling last weekend in the Premier League.
While Sterling has confirmed the racial abuse on social media, it’s worth noting that Colin Wing is defending himself.
He has claimed that rather than calling Sterling a “f****** black c***”, he claims he used the word ‘Manc’ instead.
However, in the Sunday Times this weekend, Colin Wing’s defence comes under fire as his reputation is further fleshed out.
Man United & Fernando Torres
The Sunday Times have spoken to another Chelsea fan, Josh Smaller, who has revealed he complained to the club about ColinWing’s behaviour five years ago.
Smaller, a firefighter, told the broadsheet that Wing has been spouted awful abuse in front of his 10-year-old son at a match against Manchester United.
The Sunday Times report the following:
As the game progressed, a group of fans three or four rows behind them launched a series of verbal assaults which, as well as the phrase “******* black ****”, included derogatory terms for Hispanic players and “every swear word going”.
Most were directed at United players but Chelsea’s Fernando Torres was also a target. Smaller, a firefighter who was not unaccustomed to bad language, felt particularly uncomfortable because he was with his young son.
The pair subsequently wrote to the club, with Smaller’s son penning a hand-written note revealing how upset the fans’ abuse had left him.
