Chelsea player Yossi Benayoun victim of anti-Semitic abuse on Twitter
This is not the first incident the Israeli has been involved in this season
Tuesday 07 May 2013
Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun has revealed he was the victim of anti-Semitic abuse via Twitter.
The Israeli retweeted a message, containing expletives and referring to him being Jewish, after he had thanked his followers for their birthday greetings.
"Some nice people in the world," said Benayoun on the social media site in response.
Last month, Chelsea said it would investigate after Benayoun, who is out of contract at the end of the season, said he was the victim of anti-Semitic taunts from his own supporters when he came on as a substitute against Liverpool.
