Chelsea star was booed and told to ‘fuck off’ by angry fans after the 0-0 draw at Bournemouth

ANGRY Chelsea fans appeared to boo Ben Chilwell after the club’s goalless draw at Bournemouth.

The Blues have not been able to play away from home and have only picked up five points in as many games this season.

Chilwell was caught waving and thanking the away support, only to be met with boos and even one fan shouting “Damn!”

Although one matchgoer was quick to argue that the frustration was aimed at the team’s performance and not at Chiwell individually.

He tweeted: “They didn’t boo Chilwell, they booed the performance.”

“It was frustrating, it was a disappointment and it’s annoying to watch players perform like that and run away indecisive. This has happened to every club at some point.”

It’s been a difficult start in west London for former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

And he referred to the injury list in response to fans’ frustration over further lost points.

Pochettino said: “I think the fans know that when you invest so much money there are expectations.”

“What I can tell the fans is the facts, I can’t change the reality. Since we can compete with the entire squad, we don’t have the entire squad available to us, what can we do?”


“For me there is nothing to say, the fans can do it. Twelve injured today, three out of four young players, two goalkeepers on the bench, I’ll cry, I’ll complain to who? I have to accept that.” .

“That is the circumstance and we have to accept it. We have our opinions, our reality.”

“I think we are doing good things, more than people can expect, but I told you before the season that Chelsea is about winning. Young players need to feel what it means to be a Chelsea player.”

“I can understand emotions, football is about emotions. The fans will help the team win. What can I do? If you told me today we had all our players and we might not be able to win this game.”

“Maybe I can tell you: Yes, we have to think differently, but under these circumstances we cannot lie to people.”

“This squad is new, we need to understand and feel what it means to be Chelsea players. When you don’t win, it’s normal to find other excuses.”
