Chelsea has expressed deep concern over the racial abuse aimed at Nicolas Jackson on social media following their FA Cup semi-final loss to Manchester City. The club issued a statement condemning any form of discrimination and emphasized their zero-tolerance policy towards such incidents. Chelsea vowed to support criminal prosecutions hand take severe action, including bans, against offenders who are identified as season ticket-holders or members.


Nicolas Jackson, a Senegalese forward aged 22, joined Chelsea from Villarreal last summer and has contributed significantly with 13 goals this season, including 10 in the Premier League.


Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino highlighted Jackson's importance to the team, acknowledging him as their primary striker and sole fit option in that role. Pochettino praised Jackson's efforts, noting his contributions beyond scoring, such as running and providing assists. Despite Jackson's first season in England and relative inexperience, Pochettino expressed confidence in his development, comparing him to iconic Chelsea strikers like Didier Drogba. Pochettino emphasized his unwavering support for Jackson and expressed optimism about his improvement in the upcoming season.
