A football fan who was racially abused by Chelsea supporters after they stopped him from boarding a Metro train in Paris has accepted an invitation to attend the team's Champion's League clash.

The French-Mauritian, who was off work for six months following the incident, used the Metro for the first time on Friday (February 5) and will be at the Paris Saint Germain match on February 16.

In the shocking incident, Sylla was pushed backwards off a Metro train carriage by a group of Chelsea supporters as they chanted: "We're racist and that's the way we like it."

Sylla, who said the incident was "traumatising", turned down a previous invitation from the club to attend a Stamford Bridge match after saying the ordeal was too raw.

However, nearly 12 months after the incident, he said he will accept to attending the clash at the Parc de Princes.
