Yossi Benayoun: Abused on Twitter

Chelsea have called in the police to investigate after anti-Semitic abuse was directed towards midfielder Yossi Benayoun on Twitter, Press Association Sport understands.

Israeli Benayoun revealed earlier on Tuesday that he was subjected to abuse on the social media site, retweeting a message which contained expletives and referred to him being Jewish, after he had thanked his followers for their birthday greetings.

Last month Chelsea said they 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.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
