The British newspaper Daily Mail reported that Manchester United fans chanted against homosexuality during a match against Chelsea last Saturday at Stamford Bridge in the English Premier League.
The British newspaper pointed out that Manchester United fans chanted offensive phrases against “gays”, but did not disclose the content of these phrases, but only referred to them.

United boss Eric Ten Hag and Chelsea colleague Graham Potter expressed regret and the Football Association vowed to crack down on discriminatory behaviour.
This comes in response to a campaign by the FA and the Premier League to support “gays” by splitting matches into rounds 13 and 14, with each team’s captain wearing a rainbow-colored gay flag badge in support of them.
