Premier League – Chelsea at risk for Abramovich? | Playon99 News



Chelsea will play this Sunday’s Carabao Cup final at Wembley against Liverpool, but their minds are on something else: the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).

Stamford Bridge is living its most tense hours since the arrival of Roman Abramovich as the owner of the club because of the war conflict that involves him as a friend of Vladimir Putin.

Abramovich, who has an Israeli passport and resides in England, tried to travel from France to London, but was denied entry and will not be able to return to his Kensington mansion.

In addition, it seems that the British Government under Boris Johnson’s wing is planning tough sanctions against businessmen who, like him, have relations with the Russian president.

In this hard moment, Thomas Tuchel was consulted at a press conference and lamented the warlike situation in Europe and scared him that the public will retaliate with Chelsea:

“To a certain extent I can understand the critical opinions towards the club. Towards us who represent that club. I can understand it and we can’t totally get rid of it.”

Speaking ahead of the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool, he confessed that it is a situation that keeps them from thinking about the defining game ahead:

“We must not pretend that this is not a problem. The situation for me and for everyone here is horrible. Nobody expected this. It’s quite unreal, it’s clouding our minds, clouding the excitement towards the final and brings enormous uncertainty.”

At the same time, Tuchel was not lukewarm and did not want to dodge the controversy when asked about the removal of St. Petersburg from hosting the Champions League final:

“We absolutely understand the decision and it is for the worst reason.”

Chelsea may go up for sale?

According to Bloomberg, Abramovich’s predicament is being closely followed by investment funds and private equity firms, including from the United States, to buy the Blues’ shares.

Chelsea has become one of the most powerful clubs in the world. It is the current champion of the FIFA Club World Cup, Champions League and fights for the Premier League every season.

Its value has increased since it was acquired by the Russian Abramovich in June 2003 and today it would reach 1.9 billion euros.

The intentions seem to be real and, among so many investment funds interested in the world of soccer, Chelsea has even received an offer this month.
