Someone in the Chelsea dressing room is going to be in big trouble later today.
Arsenal players are today wearing black armbands to pay tribute to the victims of last week’s attack in Manchester, and it appears as though Chelsea were supposed to do the same.
However, the Independent report that Chelsea merely forgot to put them on ahead of today’s FA Cup final.
According to the Independent, Chelsea players were in disagreement whether to wear tracksuit tops in the scorching London heat, and in the midst of it all, they forgot to put on their black armbands.
Although it is just a mistake, and mistakes happen, it really does not reflect well on the club and brings a negative tone to what should be a day of celebration. I don’t imagine Chelsea will ever make a mistake of this sort again, it really is an embarrassment for those responsible.
