Club owner Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK government on Thursday, with this decision prevents the Russian billionaire from making profits in the UK.

Chelsea won’t also be able to sell new tickets nor sign new players, however, the UK government will allow existing ticket holders to attend matches.

As long as we have enough shirts and a bus to drive to games we will be there and will compete hard, Everybody can be very sure that we focus on us, to keep the attitude and the mentality right on the training ground and within the team.

However, Chelsea are hopeful the suspension will be lifted shortly.
Under the special license, Chelsea is still able to meet up with fixtures while staff will continue to be paid and existing ticket holders are allowed to attend matches.

The UK government cleared the Blues to continue the process of selling the club after sanctioning Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea employees are not responsible for what is happening. One man is responsible for that, and it’s Vladimir Putin.

This is nothing but a direct attack on Chelsea FC. This isn’t about Roman Abramovich anymore.
