Former English Champions, Chelsea are set to withdraw from the planned European Super League.
The Blues were one of a dozen leading European clubs that agreed to be part of a new breakaway competition they hoped would rival the Champions League.
But the move has come in for almost universal condemnation with supporter groups, football figures and politicians all voicing their opposition to the proposal.
Thousands of fans protested against the new venture outside of Stamford Bridge ahead of the Premier League fixture with Brighton.
Club Legend, Petr Cech was seen pictured appealing to the fans to allow the team bus get access into the stadium premises as they voice their displeasures against Chelsea’s involvement in the Super League.
And shortly before kick-off news filtered through that the club are preparing paperwork to withdraw from the competition.
