Uzbekistan: 'Chelsea FC' toilet paper now on sale

Chelsea FC branded toilet paper

Unofficial Chelsea FC toilet paper is now on sale in the Central Asian republic of Uzbekistan, it's reported.

Uzbek website Press News published the story alongside an image of the gaudy packaging.

The English Premier League is popular among Uzbeks, and rivalry between fans appears to be fierce. Some commentators on Facebook thought it had been manufactured by a Manchester United fan. One loyal Chelsea supporter even suggested retaliating by launching a similar United version.

Many street markets in Central Asia sell Premier League merchandise such as scarves and kits - most of them counterfeit. But branded toilet paper appears to be a novelty.
