Six men were seen on a video posted on social media on Thursday abusing Salah, calling the Egypt international a “bomber”.

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud said the whole Chelsea sides were disgusted at the video.

“I think these people shouldn’t belong to Chelsea.

“I think the club and everybody condemns these kinds of things, and we are 100 per cent behind Mo Salah. I think nowadays it shouldn’t happen,’’ Giroud said.

Salah played 13 times for Chelsea before joining Roma, and eventually signing for Liverpool in the summer of 2017.
