• Two white players from 1980s youth setup back racism allegations
• Chelsea say they are taking claims seriously and offering support
• Gwyn Williams and Graham Rix deny wrongdoing
Chelsea are facing more allegations about a racism scandal involving Gwyn Williams and Graham Rix after the former youth-team footballers who claim they were subjected to horrific abuse received public backing from two of the white players who were on the club’s books.
Grant Lunn and Gary Baker, who both played in Chelsea’s youth setup in the early 1980s, said they had decided to come forward to speak about Williams after reading the statement the club’s former youth-team coach released to the Guardian in March to “deny all and any allegations of racial or other abuse”.
