UEFA are investigating Chelsea’s complaint over alleged racial abuse suffered by Hudson-Odoi on their Europa League game at Dynamo Kiev.
Chelsea made a formal complaint on behalf of the winger after the 5-0 win that sealed the Blues’ place in the last eight of the competition on March 14.

Uefa announced that a disciplinary inspector has now been appointed to “evaluate” the complaint made by Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge outfit cited the monkey chants heard from the home fans in the final minutes of the game.
Now the inspector will decide if there is “sufficient evidence” to open a case against the Ukrainian club.
Hudson Odoi, Raheem Sterling and Danny Rose were on the receiving end of monkey chants during England’s 5-1 win on Monday.
Montenegro have now been charged with racism by Uefa following the shocking scenes during the Euro 2020 qualifier.
The Blues forward called on the governing body to act after he was abused during his first start for the Three Lions.
He said: “We are equal and play a fair game and enjoy it, but when you hear that it’s not right and it’s unacceptable and hopefully Uefa deal with it because when I was over there me and Rosey heard it.
“They were saying ‘ooh ooh ah’ monkey stuff, so you just have to keep your heads and keep a strong mentality and hopefully Rosey is okay.
“If anything we will have a chat but he is a strong guy as well. Hopefully Uefa will do something about it. It’s not right.
“I was enjoying the game and to hear it is never right but you have to have a strong mentality.”
