In a parting statement, Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich thanks players and fans

As the club prepares for a takeover by a group managed by Todd Boehly, outgoing owner Roman Abramovich issued a message on Saturday thanking the players, supporters, and staff. Chelsea FC announced on Saturday that the Todd Boehly/Clearlake Capital consortium’s purchase of the Premier League club is set to close on Monday.

“I’ve been announcing my plan to sell Chelsea FC for about three months now. During this period, the staff has worked tirelessly to find Chelsea FC the appropriate custodian who will best position the club to succeed in its next chapter “Abramovich’s formal statement.

He stated that club ownership carries a significant deal of responsibility and that he has seen firsthand what the team can accomplish throughout his nearly two-decade tenure with it.

“My goal has been to ensure that the next owner has a mindset that will allow the Men’s and Women’s teams to succeed, as well as the desire and passion to continue developing other critical areas of the Club, such as the Academy and the vital work of Chelsea Foundation,” the statement continued.

Abramovich expressed his delight that the search for the perfect owner had come to an end, and wished the future owner success on and off the pitch.

“It has been a privilege to be a part of this Club for these amazing years, and I would like to thank all of the Club’s former and current players, staff, and, of course, supporters. I am delighted that the new charity foundation that is being founded will assist millions of people as a result of our shared achievements. This is the legacy we’ve left behind as a team “The statement went on to say that

On March 2, Russian-Israeli billionaire Abramovich placed Chelsea, which he bought in 2003, up for sale. Due to anger over his reported strong relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the country’s continuing military action in Ukraine, he had to leave the club.

Chelsea Football Club can confirm that a final and definitive deal was entered into last night to sell the Club to the Todd Boehly / Clearlake Capital consortium, according to an official statement.
