• Bruce Buck says action had been a ‘waste of time’
• Spokesman believes full investigation had been needed
Chelsea have moved to clarify comments by their chairman, Bruce Buck, in which he suggested Uefa’s decision to charge the club over alleged antisemitic chanting during a Europa League group game against Vidi had been “a waste of time”.
Uefa confirmed on Thursday that the charges would not be pursued, apparently because of a lack of evidence. That decision was reached despite Chelsea having released a statement immediately after the game in Budapest last December condemning those who had “shamed the club” and questioning “the brainpower” of anyone who had engaged in the chants, which had been heard in the opening three minutes of the tie and referenced “Yids”.
