Football is a passionate sport but it’s really not nice to see fans cross the line and insult their own players instead of supporting them.
One player that has received heavy abuse from Chelsea fans in recent times is Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Spaniard made his 100th appearance for Chelsea as the Blues beat Morecambe 4-0 in the FA Cup on Sunday but received abuse from Chelsea fans following a tweet after the game.
Kepa was forced to shut down his comment section in the tweet following the abuse from Chelsea.
Some Chelsea fans expressed their displeasure at the abuse Kepa received from his own fans following the game against Morecambe.
@da_Silva_black tweeted: “so sad to notice comments are being disabled on this post. I guess it due to the unnecessary abuses this lad had gotten from fans lately. @kepa_46 doesn’t deserve this unfair treatment. He was once our hero and will surely bounce back. Yesterday’s clean sheet is a clear message.”
@TheMaximinEra tweeted: “Really upsetting that he feels the need to restrict comments.”
@CFC_Hazz tweeted: “As a Chelsea fan, seeing Kepa disable his replies for a clean sheet on his 100th game upsets me, I do think there is a talented young keeper here, I know he’s been in poor form, but abuse from fans won’t help. I hope he builds his confidence back on top of what was a good game.”
As Chelsea fans, I think we should show love to our own players.
