Roman Abramovich

Former Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnsen believes that Roman Abramovich will not sell the club, despite the current uncertainty.

Abramovich was unable to attend the FA Cup final back in May due to issues with his U.K visa. He has subsequently gained Israeli citizenship, which will allow him to visit England for six-months at a time, but not live and work in the country.

The plans to redevelop Stamford Bridge have been put on hold, leaving a major question mark over Abramovich’s commitment to the cause. Some have even gone as far as suggesting that he could sell the club after fifteen-years of ownership.

Gudjohnsen, however, is relaxed. He has reassured Chelsea fans that they have nothing to worry about, and Abramovich’s dedication to the task at hand in SW6 should not be questioned.

The former Chelsea striker, who has well earned his right to share his opinion on club affairs, is quoted by the Daily Star saying:

“I’m pretty sure he’ll be devastated about not being able to go to Stamford Bridge if the situation drags on.”

“Abramovich has shown his dedication to Chelsea football club from the moment he arrived. I’m convinced he’ll continue to do so in whatever capacity.”

Well said, Eidur! Until there is any official confirmation that we have something to worry about, we ought to sleep well at night.
