Roman Abramovich: I've Taken The Decision To Sell Chelsea FC

Roman Abramovich, the owner of an English club, Chelsea FC, has announced that he has decided to sell the club amid growing tensions between European countries and Russia, his country, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine over alleged human rights abuses. In a statement posted on the club’s website, Abramovich said he believes the “difficult” decision is in the best interest of the club. He said:

I would like to address the speculation in media over the past few days in relation to my ownership of Chelsea FC. As I have stated before, I have always taken decisions with the Club’s best interest at heart. In the current situation, I have therefore taken the decision to sell the Club, as I believe this is in the best interest of the Club, the fans, the employees, as well as the Club’s sponsors and partners.

The sale of the Club will not be fast-tracked but will follow due process. I will not be asking for any loans to be repaid. This has never been about business nor money for me, but about pure passion for the game and Club. Moreover, I have instructed my team to set up a charitable foundation where all net proceeds from the sale will be donated. The foundation will be for the benefit of all victims of the war in Ukraine. This includes providing critical funds towards the urgent and immediate needs of victims, as well as supporting the long-term work of recovery.

Please know that this has been an incredibly difficult decision to make, and it pains me to part with the Club in this manner. However, I do believe this is in the best interest of the Club.

I hope that I will be able to visit Stamford Bridge one last time to say goodbye to all of you in person. It has been a privilege of a lifetime to be part of Chelsea FC and I am proud of all our joint achievements. Chelsea Football Club and its supporters will always be in my heart.

Thank you,

Big of him to donate proceeds from sale to victims of the war in Ukraine.

As I have said elsewhere, not all Russians support Putin's misadventures in Ukraine.

Big up Roman

I know he's one of the oligarchs that were behind Putin.

IRS not the selling that I am supporting. Certainly pressure to sell has been there.

What I acknowledge as big-heartedness is for the proceeds to go to the victims of the Russian putsch.

He could have just taken the money for himself. And reading between the lines, that action of supporting Putin's victims, is in a way dissociating himself from Putin

Lol dude. Roman is a huge friend of Putin and also his advisor. What the fvck are you talking about? He is selling because he has no option, the Britush government was going to push him out eventually.
