Petr Cech is the target of death threats from some Chelsea supporters, after his transfer to Arsenal was confirmed on Monday.
The Czech goalkeeper spent 11 seasons at Stamford Bridge, but spent the 2014/2015 campaign as second choice behind Thibaut Courtois.
As Gooners rejoiced over the capture of a world-cla$$ stopper, it was not the same for Blues fans who fumed and threatened the 33-year-old.
One fan targeted his family with a tweet on Monday reading:
“Say goodbye to your family for one last time before they go to sleep, you won’t be seeing them tomorrow you snake idiot”.
That fan has since had his Twitter account removed.
Another Twitter user named
@Enegali10 posted: “F******** off just saw Cech signed. Go f*** yourself. F****** brain damaged ugly sk**. Hope your kids have cancer. F****** nonce.”
He added: “I’m going to bring my SR-25 sniper rifle to the Bridge when we play Arsenal. Will be so f****** good to see Cech’s blood on the pitch.”
One said: “Hope we sign Arda Turan now so he can cause Petr Cech another head injury,” referring to the head injury Cech suffered in 2006, while another added: “Cech is not bigger then our club, you are deluded & dumb if you defend him.
“He’s a traitor & a snake. No other way to put it.”
