SOUTHAMPTON have been embroiled in a race-row amid claims of anti-Semitic chanting from followers throughout their sport in opposition to Tottenham.
A journalist attending the Premier League match as a supporter has alleged Saints supporters aimed sick Hitler and ‘gassing’ taunts at their rivals.
And the nameless fan prompt he was threatened by the culprits and one other supporter for reporting the surprising chants to stewards.
The Sunday Instances declare the journalist was sitting within the Kingsland stand at St Mary’s when the incident occurred through the South Coast membership’s 2-1 win on Saturday.
A person in his twenties is claimed to have sung: “Spurs are on their approach to Auschwitz, Hitler’s gonna fuel them once more.”
The match was mentioned to be simply ten minutes previous at that time, however when the journalist raised his grievance and mentioned the music was racist, the perpetrator responded by saying: “You’d higher not come again subsequent week.”
Later within the sport, a fellow Saints fan is then mentioned to have sung: “Usual Tottenham, all want gassing,” and “Get within the showers.”
The incidents have been reported to stewards, one more fan is claimed to have approached the journalist and warned him: “I will see you after the sport.”
Membership stewards are then mentioned to have provided to escort the journalist out of St Mary’s on the closing whistle, a gesture which was declined, and promised to report the matter to the membership.
SunSport understands that the membership could be eager to look into the allegations though no stories have but been acquired from their stewarding workforce.
It’s the newest race incident to have blighted the English sport this season, with Chelsea followers being censured by their very own membership for anti-Semitic chants throughout a Europa League tie.
A Tottenham fan was arrested for throwing a banana pores and skin at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in December.
Then Millwall supporters have been caught on video chanting racist songs at Everton supporters of their FA Cup tie in January.
West Ham have been the following to be blighted when footage emerged of a fan aiming discriminatory taunts at Liverpool star Mo Salah on the London Stadium in February.
