Looks like an easy way to take the heat off Chelsea. He'll be back in charge the minute the war in Ukraine isn't headline news in my opinion.

The 55-year-old will not be asking the club to repay loans it owes to him - meaning the long-term future of the club remains secure.

 

That would mean he has just donated 1.5 bil


Or financial doping, as it’s actually called.

Could actually mean he can bankroll them even easier - just be making 'charitable donations'.....

What does 'stewardship' mean in this context? Is it different from 'ownership'?

Management of, not ownership of.

 

Might get legally dicey if the charity has to create/transfer, then hold a 1.5 b note payable to him personally. I think he is going to forgive the debt as a donation

I dont think Id call Solhekol a journalist, mate.

Fair enough, not heard of him before, just noticed he works for Sky and was at the Times.

 

Edit- haha, the Wiki wags didn't take long-

Absolute state of this disgraceful

 

 

Not involved with Vladimir Putin? No no not at all other than being a close personal friend and playing a major part in putting him in power in the first place, but other than that no they've never met. It just shows how complicit sky are in what football has become.

Some lad on BBC 5 Live was saying they are fucked if he's sanctioned. No banks could deal with them, they would become a cash business, he's not even sure they could pay wages. I didn't catch who he was but he sounded like a Chelsea supporter and was close to tears.

If Abramovichs assets are frozen then in theory, Chelsea could become nationalised. First thing their fans will notice is limp cheese sandwiches at half time.

Abramovic is like a character from The Great Gatsby or something. From a brief stint in the military to working as a mechanic to becoming a financial commodities trader to becoming a live-in guest at the Kremlin to becoming a billionaire all in about 10 years. Only in 1990s Russia.

 

If Russia get kicked from SWIFT as seems motioned next week then it’d be nigh on impossible for them to get money over from Russia to the UK. That is way and above any sanction mooted before (only Iran have ever been kicked from SWIFT). Likely becomes tricky for Chelsea to operate logistically (and receive any outside funding).
