New Arsenal signing Petr Cech may have left Chelsea with a heartfelt letter to the fans, but that has not stopped a small proportion of them sending the goalkeeper death threats and brandishing him a "snake".

Cech completed a reported £11m transfer to the Gunners on Monday afternoon, having decided to leave Chelsea due to a lack of first team football following the emergence of Thibaut Courtois last season. After 11 years of loyal service at Chelsea, Cech was given permission by club owner Roma Abramovich to discuss a move to their London rivals Arsenal, and the 33-year-old announced the move himself before thanking those who used to cheer him on every week for his time at Stamford Bridge.

However, despite a number of fans thanking Cech for his time at the club, some supporters have been unable to contain their anger and fury at seeing him join not only another Premier League side, but one that could be challenging for the Premier League title next May.

 

One Twitter used named @Enegali10 posted two disgusting messages aimed at Cech before deleting their account. The first read: “F**KKKKK OFFFF JUST SAW CECH SIGNED GO F*** YOURSELF F****** BRAIN DAMAGED UGLY C*** HOPE UR KIDS HAVE CANCER F****** NONCE.”

A second added: “I’m going to bring my SR-25 sniper rifle to the Bridge when we play Arsenal. Will be so f****** good to see Cech’s blood on the pitch.”

Meanwhile, one Chelsea fan in Kuwait posted a video of him burning a Chelsea goalkeeper shirt.

Another user by the name of @medionegroEN posted: “F*** you Petr Cech you f****** snake, can’t believe you went o f****** Arsenal. Really wish Stephen Hunt ended your life.”

 

However, Cech's arrival at Arsenal has prompted a belief that the Gunners can challenge Chelsea for the Premier League title next season, although they still have issues in defence and midfield to address before they can realistically expect to be in the mix come the end of the season.
