Tak butuh waktu lama, para fans memberi jalan untuk bus Chelsea. Cech, sang kiper legenda ini mampu meredam emosi para fans.

Seusai laga kontra Brighton, beberapa jam kemudian pihak Chelsea mengeluarkan pernyataan. The Blus mengundurkan diri dari European Super League.

"Seperti yang diberitakan malam ini, Chelsea Football Club bisa mengonfirmasi bahwa klub sudah memulai proses penarikan diri dari European Super League," ujar pernyataan resmi klub.

"Setelah bergabung dengan liga itu pekan lalu, kini kami punya banyak waktu untuk mempertimbangkan secara matang dan memutuskan bahwa keikutsertaan kami di sana tidak sesuai dengan keinginan klub, suporter, dan komunitas sepakbola di seluruh dunia."
