9 celebrities you had no idea supported Chelsea – from Gordon Ramsay to ex-Liverpool ace

Chelsea have established themselves as one of the most successful football clubs in England over the past decade.

In the last 10 years they have won two Champions League trophies, two Premier League titles, two FA Cups, two Europa Leagues and a League Cup.

This collection of silverware is a remarkable collection that has attracted not only a new generation of fans but some great celebrities as well.

Stamford Bridge has had some famous faces due to its success, and there are some hardcore celebs who have been supporting the blues for decades.

Daily Star Sport takes a look at nine of them.

Gordon Ramsay

Before Gordan Ramsey became the global phenomenon he is today, he stood on trial and trained with the Rangers, but it’s Chelsea that he loyally supports.

The chef has been seen wearing a blues kit on many occasions and comes to the bridge when he can.

As any good father should do, Ramsay passed his love for his team on to his children, whom he introduced to former c -tain John Terry at a game.

Which of these celebrities surprised you the most? Let us know in the comments section.

Bill Clinton

Former United States President Bill Clinton is such a true blue he named his only child after them!

His daughter was named Chelsea after Bill developed an affection for the club while studying at Oxford University in the 1960s.

During his stay in England he visited Stamford Bridge several times.

Jeremy Clarkson

Like Ramsay, former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has made no secret of his Chelsea support.

He’s a regular game goer and even loves a day away after the blues.

Videos of Clarkson celebrating a Champions League final win over Man City last season went viral after hitting the streets of Porto.

Lil Wayne

Though r -per Lil Wayne was born in New Orleans, he has found a taste for Chelsea, possibly because they have won as much metal as he wears around his neck.

He has  -peared on stage with Chelsea Clobber more than once, but he has yet to visit the bridge.

Shane Warne

You may play a different sport, but cricketers love football as much as anyone else, and legendary Australian bowler Shane Warne chose to be a Chelsea fan.

However, it’s a decision he didn’t have much of a choice in.

Warne told the  : “I was on the train from Bristol to London and was on the tube when a guy in a Chelsea scarf and Chelsea stuff came up to me and said, ‘Who are you supporting?’

“I looked at him and in his hand he had a large knife – a bit like the one Paul Hogan had in Crocodile Dundee when he said, ‘This is a knife’.

“So I said I would support Chelsea. And since then I’ve been too scared to support others.”

Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell has followed Chelsea for well over a decade

American comedian and actor Will Ferrell is a huge Chelsea fan that you will find among her celebrity supporters.

In 2009 he was even named honorary c -tain for a pre-season game against Inter Milan.

Ferrell must have a fairly large collection of jerseys, too, as he has been spotted in a number of different blues flicks over the years.

John Motson

Football commentators and referees are often asked who they support – but when he did, legendary broadcaster John Motson lied for decades!

Motty claimed to be a supporter of Barnet throughout his career, but his true love was elsewhere.

In his book he revealed: “You can’t avoid the question forever – especially when I look up from my desk while writing and see two shelves of Chelsea programs that span 40 years to 1985.

Commentator John Motson had to keep his love for Chelsea a secret

“When I got to Match of the Day in 1971, Chelsea played a role in my first faltering comment. Somehow my Chelsea loyalties were pushed into the background.

“It was important that I sounded impartial and neutral on the microphone.”

Sir Michael Caine

He may have been known for his south London accent, but Sir Michael Caine’s football team loyalty falls to the west of the English c -ital.

The highly regarded actor has been a fan of the reigning European champion all his life.

Peter Crouch

Peter Crouch has only ever played against the team he supports

At the end of his journeyman career, Peter Crouch was about to move to Chelsea – and it would have closed his circle of life.

The former Liverpool striker was a ball boy at Stamford Bridge at the age of 10.

His whole family supports the club and took him to games as a child.

However, it didn’t stop him from scoring the winning goal against them for the Reds in the 2006 Community Shield.
