Porto apologise for handball fans' chants about Chapecoense crash

Chapecoense memorial
The Chapecoense plane crash in November killed 71 people, including 19 players.

FC Porto's president has apologised for his club's fans chanting that they wished rivals Benfica had been on board the plane that crashed with Brazilian team Chapecoense.

Some Porto fans chanted "I wish Benfica had been on Chapecoense's plane" during a handball match between Porto and Benfica on Wednesday.

In a letter provided by the club to The Associated Press, Porto president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa wrote to Chapecoense to apologise for "the insulting chants."

Pinto da Costa added that Porto would like to help the Brazilian club rebuild from the November 2016 crash that took the lives of most of its team. The crash in Colombia killed 71 of 77 people on board, including 19 Chapecoense players.

Huge football rivals in Portugal, Porto and Benfica also compete in other sports, including handball. Porto won the match on Wednesday and lead the Portuguese handball league.
