Chelsea football club are set to take legal action against unofficial vendours who are selling abusive t-shirts picturing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane as a Hasidic Jew.
The Times reports the Premier League champions are now looking to halt the sales of the shirt – along with other offensive t-shirts – which are available to buy prior to home games at Stamford Bridge.
The shirt in question depicts dressed as a Hasidic Jew with the slogan: "He's one of your own", in reference to Spurs fans' chant for the England striker who came through the Club's academy.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council's trading standards have today vowed to stop the sales, with a spokesperson saying: "We will not tolerate the sale of offensive and anti-Semitic merchandise on the streets of our borough.
"Trading Standards officers will continue their work, with the support of the club and their fans, to stop the sale of these deeply unpleasant T-shirts."
