Arsenal’s new recruit Petr Cech has finally replied to the Chelsea fans regarding their abuses and death threats on twitter. Petr Cech left Chelsea to join city rivals Arsenal on Monday, 29th June. Cech was out of favour at the Blues under Jose Mourinho since last season after young Belgian custodian Thibaut Courtois joined the side. Due to lack of first team opportunity he left the club. After the much-speculated transfer was done, a sect of Chelsea fans hurled series of abuse on Cech. They called him ‘traitor’, ‘snake’ and some of them wrote death threats. 

Petr recently spoke about the negative comments of his former club’s fans. He mentioned specifically that he had received a lot of good wishes and messages from the Blues fans. Cech criticised the act of those set of fans and refused to attest them as club loyalists.

He was quoted by the media: “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.

“There are some people who have left me negative messages, but they aren’t true Chelsea fans.”

Petr Cech also thanked and praised his ex-boss Jose Mourinho. he showered the manager with praises saying, “Jose is one of the best managers in the world, our relationship hasn’t changed, although he went with Thibaut Courtois last season.

“But we respect each other. He made his decision and I made mine.

“We had a good chat – I know he wanted me to stay, but that’s the way it goes.”
