AS Roma have been charged with racist behaviour by UEFA after a section of their supporters appeared to taunt their former defender Antonio Ruediger with monkey chants during their 3-3 Champions League draw at Chelsea in London on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old, capped 20 times by Germany, joined the Premier League side in 2017 after a two-year stint at Roma. He made a total of 72 appearances for the Serie A club.

European football’s governing body said in a statement on Friday that it had opened proceedings against the Italian side under Article 14 of its disciplinary regulations.

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case on Nov. 16.
