According to reports from the Daily star news, Leicester City fans have slammed Ben Chilwell after he was caught laughing with Ross Barkley after their FA Cup exit at the hands of Chelsea.
The Foxes suffered a miserable afternoon as their poor run of form continued in their quarter final tie. Ross Barkley came off the bench at half time to net the winner and end Brendan Rodgers’ hopes of delivering silverware to the Foxes.
There was also a close eye being kept on Chilwell, wanted by Chelsea this summer transfer window, as he faced the club he could join this summer.
Despite an afternoon to forget in which he made minimal impact, he was seen joking around with Barkley and smiling at full-time. The footage enraged many Leicester fans, who are facing the potential loss of Chilwell with a reported £75million asking price.
One fan simply said: “Leave” to Chilwell with another stating: “I will laugh like Ben Chilwell if we sell Ben Chilwell to Chelsea for anything over £60m”.
“Everyone is gutted and there’s Chilwell laughing. Get him gone,” another said with a further comment stating: “Ben Chilwell laughing and joking with the Chelsea players not even 10 seconds after the whistle has blown is exactly why I dislike him.
Just been knocked out the quarterfinal of a completion Ben, is it to much to ask for a bit of maturity and dignity until the cameras go off?”. Others branded him an “absolute disgrace” and said the “sooner we sell him the better” with tensions running high after another disappointing display.
