    Roman Abramovich sends farewell message to Chelsea fans

    Roman Abramovich has been in charge of Chelsea since 2003

    Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has sent a farewell message to the Blues’ fans, as he prepares to sell the club.

    This comes after Chelsea confirmed that a definitive agreement was entered into on Friday to guide the club into the hands of Todd Boehly.

    Abramovich will step down after nearly two decades at Stamford Bridge.

    In that time, the west Londoners secured five Premier League titles, which is the third most of any side in the Premier League era.

    Elsewhere, they have also won five FA Cups, three League Cups, two Community Shields, two Champions Leagues, two Europa Leagues, one UEFA Super Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup.

    In turn, in a statement released by Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, Abramovich had the following to say:

    “It has been nearly three months since I announced my intention to sell Chelsea FC. During this time, the team have worked hard to find the right custodian for Chelsea FC that would be best positioned to successfully lead the Club into its next chapter. The ownership of this Club comes with great responsibility. Since I came to Chelsea nearly twenty years ago, I have witnessed first-hand what this Club can achieve.

    “My goal has been to ensure that the next owner has a mindset that will enable success for the Men’s and Women’s team, as well as the will and drive to continue developing other key aspects of the Club, such as the Academy and the vital work of Chelsea Foundation. I am pleased this search has now come to a successful conclusion. As I hand over Chelsea to its new custodians, I would like to wish them the best of success, both on and off the pitch. It has been an honour of a lifetime to be a part of this Club – I would like to thank all the Club’s past and current players, staff, and of course fans for these incredible years.

    “I am proud that as a result of our joint successes, millions of people will now benefit from the new charitable foundation which is being established. This is the legacy which we have created together. Thank you. Roman”
