Cech was forced to intervene as tensions threatened to boil over during protests before Chelsea’s Premier League tie at home to Brighton on Tuesday evening.

Thousands of Chelsea fans gathered outside Stamford Bridge on Tuesday afternoon to voice their opposition to the Blues joining the breakaway league.

“Let people sort this out, but this is not the thing,” Cech is heard saying in the video.

“Let the people in. Let the bus go in. Give people time.”

Chelsea players were stuck in their hotels for a short period of time due to the protests.

According to The Athletic’s Simon Johnson, Brighton couldn’t arrive at the stadium for a period of time either.

Chelsea Supporters’ Trust.

The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust released a statement on Monday condemning their club over their involvement in the European Super League.

“They say expect the unexpected, but on Sunday night the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust, our members and football supporters across the world have experienced the ultimate betrayal,” the statement read.

“Chelsea Football Club, along with eleven of the top European sides have announced their intention to establish a ‘Super League’.

“This is a decision of greed to line the pockets of those at the top and it has been made with no consideration for the loyal supporters, our history, our future or the future of football in this country.”
