A couple of Chelsea-supporting builders have sparked outrage among Fulham fans after filming themselves hiding a Blues flag within the foundations of one of the stands inside Craven Cottage.
In a clip shared to social media, the builders are pictured on top of the recently-renovated Riverside Stand when the camera pans to one of them gleefully holding a Chelsea flag.
The supporter then stuffs the flag into an empty section of panelling in the side of the wall while the camera man says: "There you go, for the boys. That's there forever," before the duo share a laugh. "Good luck getting that out," the second builder adds, before the other replies: "You're not allowed up here."

The cheeky stunt didn't go down too well among Fulham fans on social media, with some of them even demanding the stand be torn down.
"But Chelsea claim they don't see us as rivals… ok," one tweeted. "Someone sort this out please," said another, while a third demanded: "Tear down the bloody stand!"

Chelsea fans on the other hand were absolutely loving it. "This is so funny. This lad is proper Chels," one tweeted. "Fabulous s***housery," another wrote. "Look at the replies, they're losing their s*** haha," a third said.
Renovation work on Fulham's Riverside Stand began back in 2019, with Craven Cottage's capacity set to increase from 25,700 to 29,600 – though work was halted due to the pandemic.
The stand was officially reopened over the summer, though expansion is set to continue into next year with the project set to be fully completed in time for the start of the 2023/24 season.
Chelsea play Fulham at Craven Cottage in less than a month… let's hope they manage to dig the flag out before then.
