Arsenal new boy Petr Cech has received several death threats from Chelsea fans on Twitter following his £10million move to the Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea supporters appear to be unhappy with Cech’s decision to move across London despite the fact the Czech Republic international represented his former side with distinction during his 11-year spell at Stamford Bridge.
Several Twitter users purporting to be Chelsea fans labelled Cech a ‘traitor’ and a ‘snake’, while another said ‘Cech is dead to me, the helmet wearing snake’.
A Chelsea fan with the username ‘@Febreezion’ went as far as tweeting: ‘Say goodbye to your family for one last time before they go to sleep, you won’t be seeing them tomorrow you snake idiot.’
Another made reference to the incident which saw Cech sustain a serious head injury following a collision with then-Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt in October 2006.
