Chelsea fans think Noni Madueke has 'blamed' Marc Cucurella for Ben Chilwell's red card

Noni Madueke commented on Ben Chilwell's post after he apologised for his red card.

Chelsea fans think Noni Madueke has 'blamed' Marc Cucurella for Ben Chilwell's red card against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Chilwell received his marching orders after dragging down Rodrygo just before the hour mark, with supporters online taking aim at Cucurella for failing to track the Brazilian's run.

The La Liga giants, who were leading 1-0 at the time of Chilwell's sending off, doubled their advantage 15 minutes later when Marco Asensio swept home.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at the Bernabeu, Frank Lampard said the left-back's absence in the second-leg will be a big miss as he shared his thoughts on the sequence.

"It’s a shame for Chilly because I think he was trying to recover a situation he shouldn’t have to try and recover so I feel for him there and he’s a big miss for us," he said.

Chilwell has since apologised for his red card as he took to social media to admit his decision to foul Rodrygo was a 'mistake'.

He wrote: "Slept on it, and just want to apologise to my team mates and the fans. I made the decision in a split second last night and it was a mistake. I always give everything for the team and i will continue to do so. Thank you for the support."

His teammates have responded to the post, including Madueke who appeared to blame Cucurella as he commented: "Not your fault bro."

Naturally, the exchange between Chilwell and Madueke got Chelsea fans talking online.

One Twitter user wrote: "LOOOL nah no way he commented that. We may have a squad full of spineless players after all.

Noni a real one for that response."

A second tweeted: "This is quite simply embarrassing all around from Chilwell to Noni."

A third added: "Then we wonder why we are sh*t, there is no chemistry in this team, just a bunch of individuals who don't even respect one another."

A fourth said: "To be fair it was literally Cucurella’a fault."

Another commented: "Madueke knows."

Chilwell will be unavailable for next Tuesday's return leg at Stamford Bridge as as the Blues will look to turnaround a two-goal deficit.
