Chelsea fans lash out at Petr Cech following transfer to London rivals Arsenal
The Czech Republic international sealed a move to the Premier League Champions’ capital rivals on Monday – in a £10m deal – and inevitably left a section of the Blues’ supporters furious at his decision to join an English foe.
The stopper was branded a ‘snake’, while one vile Twitter user wrote of his ‘wish’ that former Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt had ended the 33-year-old’s life during their on-pitch collision in 2006 that left the goalkeeper needing to wear a protective helmet for the rest of his playing career [via the Independent].
Cech has now spoken out against the so-called Chelsea supporters that took the decision to turn against their former No.1 after 11-years of service to the west London giants.
“The true fans have sent me messages that are pleasing and positive. True fans will appreciate what I’ve done and the legacy I’ve left,” as quoted by the Independent.
“There are some people who have left me negative messages, but they aren’t true Chelsea fans.”
Among the goalkeeper’s Stamford Bridge honours are four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two Community Shields, one Champions League and one Europa League.
