‘I love my club’ – Chelsea Women’s manager Hayes reacts after Cuthbert jockeys for ‘when your drunk partner wants a fight’ tweet

Chelsea Women’s manager Emma Hayes responded to Erin Cuthbert’s jokey “when your drunk partner wants a fight” tweeting “I love my club” and “I’m just taking care of my teammates”.

Hayes kept the pressure on Arsenal at the top of the Women’s Super League (WSL) with a 1-0 home win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

The players’ relief was evident after Sam Kerr’s stoppage-time winner, the Blues are now only five points behind the Gunners with two games in hand.

What has been said?

Chelsea celebrated wildly after scoring, and Hayes joined in, but an unfortunate screenshot started doing the rounds on social media.

Midfielder Cuthbert posted an image of Hayes holding one of her players and clashing with another: “When your drunk partner wants to fight, but you already want to join the club.”

The blues star included a laughing emoji in his post, and Hayes later responded to Cuthbert’s tweet.

“I’m just taking care of my teammates,” the Chelsea boss tweeted. “Our fans who sang for the team in the 90th minute will always be with me.

“We’ve got you and you’ve got us. I love my club.”
