Benayoun?! Complains he was called a ‘little Jew’ by some Chelsea supporters.
Ok, not the best compliment. But the supporters (fans?) may have been upset at what Benayoun has said about the club since he actually joined it. He’s always been upset at not being good enough to play for the team, and is more than likely fed up with being loaned out to anyone who’ll have him.
With this in mind I can see why he just wants to complain about the club at any opportunity. The supporters concerned won’t have seen this view, I suspect, and are just aware of the fact he earns £75k per week and chooses to slag off the club that’s been paying him it.
It is unfortunate they chose to use the term they did, despite it actually being factually correct (he’s a slight chap, and is, of course, Jewish). But in this day & age it is seen as racist and derogatory. Unlike calling a welshman ‘taff’, or a Scot ‘scotty’ or ‘jock’, for example.
Still, hopefully now he’s been released he will naff off and moan elsewhere.
