Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was involved in a heated exchange with a supporter, following Sunday’s 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.
The Blues were humiliated at the Etihad, suffering one of their worst-ever Premier League losses and dropping to sixth in the Premier League table.
According to Goal, tensions spilled over after the final whistle, with Rudiger clashing with a travelling supporter.
The German walked to the away end to give his shirt to a fan, apologising for the result and being applauded by the majority.
One angry fan had to be restrained by security, however, as he hurled abuse at the German centre-back.

It is believed that Rudiger told the supporter:
I’ve come over to say sorry – stand in front of me if you‘ve something to say.
Footage of the incident was shared afterwards, on a bad day for anyone of a Chelsea persuasion.
Maurizio Sarri’s job is now hanging by a thread, with the display of his players not one that suggested they are all performing for their manager.
