Abramovich said goodbye to Chelsea: It was an honor to be part of this club

Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich said today that it was a great honor to be the head of that football club and wished the new owners a lot of success in the future. “It has been almost three months since I announced my intention to sell Chelsea. radio to find the right guard for Chelsea who would be in the best position to successfully lead the club to the next chapter, “Abramovic said in a statement posted on the club’s website.

Abramovich had to sell the club due to alleged ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the midst of military intervention in Ukraine. A few days after the war started, on February 24, Abramovich announced the club for sale.

Earlier today, Chelsea announced that a “final and definitive” agreement had been reached with a consortium led by US billionaire Todd Boli and that the sale of the club would be completed on Monday.

The sale of Chelsea was approved earlier this week by the British government and the Premier League, as well as the government of Portugal, since Abramović also has a passport from that country.

In a statement, Abramovic pointed out that the ownership of this club comes with great responsibility, and added that since he came to Chelsea almost 20 years ago, he “saw first hand what this club can achieve.”

“My goal was to ensure that the next owner has a mindset that will enable the success of both the men’s and women’s teams, as well as the will and desire to continue developing other key aspects of the club, such as the Chelsea Academy and Foundation,” Abramovich said.

“I am glad that this search has now been successfully concluded. As I hand over Chelsea to its guards, I would like to wish them much success, both on and off the field,” he added.

The consortium led by Boli will buy Chelsea for 4.25 billion pounds. Proceeds from the sale go to a frozen account controlled by the British government and will be donated to humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

“It was an honor to be a part of this club, I would like to thank all the former and current players of the club, the staff and, of course, the fans for these amazing years,” said Abramovich.

“I am proud that, as a result of our joint successes, millions of people will now benefit from the new charitable foundation that is being established. This is the legacy we have created together,” he concluded.

The consortium led by Boli will buy Chelsea for 4.25 billion pounds. Proceeds from the sale go to a frozen account controlled by the British government and will be donated to humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

While Abramovich was the owner of the London club, Chelsea won 21 trophies, including five Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues.
