Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich announced to give up the supervision of Chelsea to the charitable foundation of club. Pressure has been mounting due his long-held connection with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia is facing with international sanctions for its invasion to Ukraine. A member of the British Parliament read a leaked 2019 Home Office document linking Abramovich to Putin and “corrupt activity and practices”. The billionaire may not be allowed in Britain. However, Chelsea F.C. trustees have not yet agreed to run club. The period under his control is considered as the most glorious era in history.
How many trophies have Chelsea won since Abramovich?
Chelsea won Club World Cup means they have won every trophy since Abramovich’s ownership. It was the sicth different major trophy since 2003. The Blues have already won 18 trophies in all, the most decorated English club in that time.
Abramovich said, “I think the trophies speak for themselves and show what we as a club have been able to achieve over these years, and it’s my goal for us to keep winning trophies going forward and build for the future. Chelsea has a very rich history, and I feel extremely fortunate to play a part in that. The club was here before me, and will be here after me, but my job is to ensure we are as successful as we can be today, as well as build for the future. Chelsea is not just the men’s first team. Chelsea is a community. It’s the Women’s team, it’s the youth teams, it’s the Academy.”
