Over 1,000 fans gathered outside Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium to protest against the Super League plan ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League match against Brighton.

Less than two hours after the protesters made their feelings known, it was first reported that Chelsea are preparing documentation to become the first club to withdraw from the competition.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, now the club’s technical advisor, had come out of the stadium in a bid to persuade fans to clear the roads before news of their impending withdrawal broke.

Cech was heard shouting “give us time” before being drowned out by angry protesters.

Chelsea are set to join Manchester City and withdraw from proposals for a European Super League after a furious backlash against the controversial plan.

Chelsea was one of 12 leading European clubs to sign up to the breakaway league on Sunday.

But reaction to the incendiary scheme has been scathing, with politicians and football

authorities threatening to take legal action against the so-called “dirty dozen” and potentially ban them from domestic leagues.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid were the other 10 sides to agree to the plan.

However, reports have emerged that Atletico and Barcelona are both also considering withdrawing.

Chelsea decision to backtrack alongside City could spark the collapse of a project that has sparked outrage across the continent.
