A Chelsea fan brutally told Timo Werner to ‘get out of the club’ across the PA system at Stamford Bridge while the German striker trained on the other side of the pitch on Wednesday.

Thomas Tuchel’s side treated a small number of fans to an open training session ahead of their trip across London to play Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

New £98million signing Romelu Lukaku was in attendance while Cesar Azpilicueta and Co paraded their Champions League and European Super Cup trophies on the pitch before getting down to business. 

But, things turned sour in the stands when some of the fans in attendance were given the chance to offer up a score prediction for Sunday’s match at the Emirates across the PA system at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel’s side was stood on the opposite of the pitch at this point, carrying out their exercises. 

In a video posted on Twitter, the host of the event can be heard asking one fan who you can struggle to make out near the front of the stand.

The fan replied: ‘Let’s have it right…. get Werner out of the club’.

The withering comment produced a stunning reaction from those other Chelsea fans who sat near him in the stand.

One supporter was particularly irate and shouted: ‘No, you get out’ to the fan before asking ‘who are you? who do you think you are?’  

Reports suggest the criticism continued towards the fan before he was chased out of Stamford Bridge by the irate supporter. 

Footage has since emerged of him on the supporter’s Twitter account that appears to show him getting into a taxi and leaving the area. 

She later tweeted: ‘Maybe I shouldn’t attend open training sessions #triggered’ with a crying with laughter emoji before adding ‘thanks people but I really ain’t no legend. Save that terminology for our ex-players/managers.’

The Blues beat off huge competition to sign Werner from RB Leipzig for £53million last summer but his first season in English football was a struggle.

Werner scored 12 goals and contributed 15 assists in 52 appearances for the Blues but couldn’t put together a regular run of goals. 

He also missed a number of good chances that led to consternation from supporters and prompted Tuchel into searching for a new striker; Lukaku.
