CHELSEA supporters reacted with a “not right now” attitude after Trivago tweeted about their sponsorship deal shortly after the club missed out on a major signing.

The Blues have chased the Brighton midfielder throughout the window and saw three bids rejected.
They have made a FOURTH offer, but Liverpool then entered the race as they look to replace Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.
Brighton held an auction with a midnight cut-off on Thursday, and Jurgen Klopp’s team are believed to have outbid Chelsea by £10m.
They are willing to offer £110m for the 21-year-old Ecuadorian Caicedo, topping the British record £107m Chelsea paid Benfica for Enzo Fernandez in January.
Meanwhile, despite Chelsea still searching for a new kit sponsor, Trivago are the club’s official training kit partner.
And ahead of the new season, they seemed to be excited about the partnership as they tweeted in anticipation prior to Sunday’s home clash with Liverpool: “The best things come to those who wait (until Sunday) @ChelseaFC.”
However, fed-up fans quickly responded to it in amusing fashion after discovering the Caicedo news.
One responded to the tweet by saying: “We love you Trivago but not right now please…”
“The timing of this tweet,” said another while a fellow fan commented: “We love you but also read the room.”
“We’re hot my friend, read the room,” said another with another response saying: “Today is not good day for riddles.”
Meanwhile, another supporter begged: “Donate money for @moisescaicedo55.”
