A Chelsea fan was reportedly chased out of Stamford Bridge on Wednesday after abusing Timo Werner during the club's open training session.
The Blues trained in front of supporters and posed in front of the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup trophies as they prepare for Sunday's London derby against Arsenal.
Club-record signing Romelu Lukaku was present after completing his £95million move from Inter Milan last week to return to west London.
However, the event was marred by the actions of one supporter, who called for the club to sell Werner over the PA system as fans were interviewed.
As the event presenters made their way around the crowd, one fan got on the mic and said "Listen, I've got a word. Let's have it. Get Werner out the club."
This outburst could be heard by the players on the opposite side of the pitch and was met by a chorus of boos from fellow supporters.
One particularly angered supporter confronted the fan, shouting: "You get out, get out! Who are you? Who do you think you are? You get out!"
The footage of the altercation quickly went viral on Twitter.
The Sun say those present claimed that the fan was forced to leave the ground and was chased into a taxi by the angered supporter.

After the event, presenter Olivia Buzaglo condemned the fan's actions on Twitter as she wrote: "The best time co-hosting Chelsea's open training. Lovely to speak to everyone there (even if there was one idiot that tried to ruin it).
"Hope you all had as much fun as I did."
Werner received a host of support from Chelsea fans after the event with many taking to social media to praise his efforts for the club and call out the abusive fan.
One wrote: "Werner put all his soul into helping Chelsea win the Champions League. A true Chelsea fan would never dare to talk s*** about him."
Another had a message for the abusive supporter as they tweeted: "To the 'fan' at the open training session who just said "Get Werner out of the club", you're not a proper Chelsea fan. Simple as."
The support did not go unnoticed by Germany international Werner, who took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to thank supporters for their kind words.
"Thanks for all the love and support I received today, Blues Fans! Really appreciate it," wrote the former RB Leipzig forward who joined the Blues for £50million last summer.
Werner scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in 52 appearances in his first season in England, finishing as the club's joint-top scorer in all competitions as they won the Champions League.
He has yet to score this term, however, after starting both the Super Cup win over Villarreal and the opening day home win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
