Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is currently without a U.K visa, according to the BBC.
Abramovich purchased Chelsea football club back in 2003. He fast revolutionised the footballing world with his heavily investment and immeasurable ambition for the club.
The Russia propelled Chelsea from top-four battlers to back-to-back Premier League winners. Merely a season after his arrival we won the title for the first time in fifty-years. The debt that we owe Abramovich for what he has done for our club is one that can never be repaid.
Fifteen-years on from him taking over the club, he doesn’t appear to have fell out of love with Chelsea. However, his relationship with our country of residence may well have struck a bump in the road.
It’s claimed that Abramovich’s U.K visa is yet to be renewed, having expired three weeks ago. Following the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, tensions between England and Russia are strained.
There are suggestions that Abramovich’s close relationship with president Vladimir Putin could have something to do with the situation. As of now, it is unclear. The owner of our club currently has no right to live and work in England, though. That’s not good.
