UK government sanction on Chelsea billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich has led to the frozen of all his assets that are in the UK including, Chelsea FC.
The sanction is pronounced to stop the Russian citizen from making money from the UK. However, in a way to allow the flow of football activities that concern Chelsea football club, the UK has granted the club a special license that allows them to play their fixtures, pay staff and allow fans that have an existing ticket to come over and watch matches.
The sanction on the Russian – Israelite owner means Chelsea cannot give out a new contract to players or staff, conduct any transfer business or sell new tickets to matches as things stand.
Chelsea manager after their dramatic victory against Norwich at Carrow Road revealed that despite the sanction on the club activities, he is still happy at the club and admitted that he can’t influence the decision of the government.
The manager however highlighted more on the sanction in an interview that was granted by sky sports journalist, Geoff Shreeves ahead of Chelsea match against Newcastle, the head coach said: “maybe it has never been more true to live in the moment because everything else seems very, very difficult”
“It is not easy, but it is out of our control. Sometimes it makes things more difficult, but sometimes more easy to accept we cannot do anything at the moment, to wait and to constantly adapt.”
Chelsea cruise past Norwich last night despite the current club’s poor situation
Chelsea put their off-field problem aside and pounced on poor Norwich which is battling to avoid relegation this season.
Goals from Chalobah, Mason Mount and Havertz gave the blues a 3 – win at Carrow road. Despite the positive result, Tuchel said: “unacceptable” in Ukraine shows there are much more important issues in life than football.
“It is hard to focus only on football, but as bad and as horrible as the situation is in Ukraine and the situation with Russia starting this war, which is incredibly unacceptable and horrible, there are so many things more important than football, and it was also before the war in Russia started”
