The Center for Information and Documentation on Israel is pressing charges against PSV supporters on Wednesday. A video posted online shows the supporters chanting an antisemitic song, a spokesperson for CIDI confirmed to the Volkskrant.

The video shows mostly young people wearing PSV shirts and singing (translated): "My dad was in the commandos, my mother in the SS. Together they burned Jews, for Jews burn the best."

If supporters in stadiums make antisemitic statements, CIDI takes the matter to the KNVB. But as this incident took place outside the stadium, CIDI is turning to the police.

A PSV spokesperson expressed his horror at the video earlier on Wednesday. "We abhor this, they are horrible lyrics. This has nothing to do with PSV, football or society", he said to the newspaper. The club is investigating the video.
