German club condemns fans' anti-Semitic abuse

German club Chemnitzer FC has criticised their fans for anti-Semitic and racist abuse during a third-division game against Bayern Munich's second team on Saturday.

The Saxony-based club, which has long had a problem with far-right fans, say their team refused to go to the traveling supporters after the match, as is customary, because of "comments from the guest block during the second half of the game which Chemnitzer FC finds disgusting and rejects to the utmost."

Chemnitzer says the abuse was directed toward its president Thomas Sobotzik and in favour of former captain Daniel Frahn.

The team terminated Frahn's contract earlier this month after saying he "openly displayed sympathy with leading figures" in the club's far-right hooligan groups.

The club added that it also is pursuing legal action against the perpetrators.
