Chelsea Fans Threaten To Kill Petr Cech
New Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has received death threats on Twitter from fans claiming to be supporters of his former club Chelsea.
One fan even targeted his family with a tweet 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.
Cech has been branded a 'snake' and a 'traitor' on social media by a host of users following his £11million switch across the capital to Arsenal.
He completed his medical and agreed on a four-year contract last week ahead of the proposed move, after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich allowed him to leave the club to continue his career.
But despite his trophy-laden 11-year stint at Stamford Bridge, some fans of the Blues have taken exception to the fact he has decided to move to one of their greatest rivals.
One Twitter user named @Enegali10 disgustingly said: "F******** off just saw Cech signed. Go f*** yourself. F****** brain damaged ugly sk**. Hope your kids have cancer. F****** nonce."
He continued: "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."
Another turned the attention to the head injury which Cech picked up back in 2006 when he collided with Reading's Stephen Hunt during a match.
