Shane Warne started supporting Chelsea after he was interrogated on the Underground by a Blues fan carrying a massive knife like Crocodile Dundee

SHANE WARNE started supporting Chelsea after he was interrogated by a fan with a knife like Crocodile Dundee on the Underground.

The Australian cricket legend has claimed that he is now “too scared” to support another team after the bizarre incident in 1989.

Warne said the supporter’s blade was as big as the one used by Paul Hogan in the iconic ‘that’s a knife’ scene in the Crocodile Dundee film.

Speaking about the incident, he told the BBC: “I had caught the train from Bristol to London and was on the tube when some guy with a Chelsea scarf and Chelsea stuff all over him came up to me and said ‘who do you support?’.

“I looked at him and in his hand he had a big knife – a bit like the one Paul Hogan had in Crocodile Dundee when he says ‘that’s a knife’.

“So I said I’ll support Chelsea. And ever since then, I have been too scared to support anyone else.”

The 49-year-old has also revealed that his favourite Blues player used to be close friend Andriy Shevchenko.

But now the Ukranian star has hung up his boots, the cricket ace has a new star player at Stamford Bridge.

He said: “Like most Chelsea fans now, I would say Hazard is my favourite.

“He is an absolute gun and he is the star.”

And the Australian believes that Chelsea can beat Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side this weekend.

He said: “We have done well the last few times they come to Stamford Bridge.

“As long as we keep beating them that would be good, because a lot of my friends support United.”
