Petr Cech was forced to intervene as thousands of Chelsea supporters protested against the planned European Super League outside Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

The Blues are one of a dozen clubs who have committed to joining a new breakaway European competition they hope will rival the Champions League.

The proposal, announced on Sunday night, has been met with almost universal criticism with supporters, pundits and even politicians speaking out to condemn the move.

Leeds and Liverpool fans joined forces on Monday evening to protest against the venture ahead of their match at Elland Road.

And thousands of Chelsea supporters did the same on Tuesday ahead of the Blues’ meeting with Brighton in the Premier League.

Former goalkeeper Cech, who is now a senior club advisor, got involved to try and plead with those present to allow the team buses into the stadium complex.
