Kerr-blam! Chelsea star leveled Champions League pitch invaders

Chelsea star Sam Kerr received a yellow card for leveling a pitch invader in the Blues’ 0-0 Champions League draw with Juventus in London on Wednesday.

The man running down the pitch and trying to take a picture with Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson was greeted on the shoulder of the Australia international and sprawled on the ground – much to the delight of the audience.

Those cheers turned to boos, however, when Kerr was booked by Swedish referee Sara Persson, much to Chelsea manager Emma Hayes’s astonishment.

“He can wait until the last minute to take a picture if he really wants one. But jokes aside, we have to think about player safety,” Hayes said.

“We’ve seen in the development of the game, players have more demand. It will be a reminder to all of us in our stadiums and to our managers. For me, we have to put player protection first.”

Chelsea missed their chance to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League with one game to spare as they were held to a draw by the Italian side at Kingsmeadow.

The Blues, who beat Arsenal to win the FA Cup at Wembley on Sunday, they missed many opportunities in the deadlock – they failed to score in a single game for the first time this season.

Chelsea is still top of Group A and 3 points ahead of second place Wolfsburg. They will win the right to the quarterfinals if they avoid defeat to the German team in the final match next week.

“We’re in the driver’s seat [to qualify] Hayes will go into the final game in the position we want.

“I think we look a bit tired but I think that’s to be expected. I think we’ve got the toughest group – to be at the top right now, I’m really happy about that. there.”!-chelsea-star-flattens-champions-league-pitch-invader Kerr-blam! Chelsea star leveled Champions League pitch invaders
