THE French sales manager racially abused by Chelsea fans has been signed by the club.
Souleymane S was invited to Stamford Bridge so the club could apologise, but was mistaken for a left-sided defender and given a four-year contract on £90,000 a week.
Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck said: “It’s club policy, if we see a Frenchman the wrong side of 30 who we feel we owe something to, to sign him automatically. Just ask Didier Drogba.
“Turns out he’s not played football for a decade, has no work permit and doesn’t want to live in England. It’s ended up looking more like a City signing.
“Though I am already getting angry calls from Arsene Wenger saying he’s been tracking him since the youth team, so that’s an option.”
