English football coach, Gary Neville has made comments concerning Roman Abramovich’s announcement that he intends to sell Chelsea.
The Sky Sports pundit made the statement while sharing his views on the situation, and on the issues of so-called sportswashing and club ownership in the Premier League.
Abramovich made the announcement on Wednesday evening, as a result of the increasing fears of UK sanctions, after having almost 20-year ownership of the club, Sky Sports reports.
The billionaire has made a promise to found a charitable foundation “for the benefit of all victims of the war in Ukraine” with the net proceeds from the sale.
More so, the businessman had an intention to hand “stewardship and care” of Chelsea to the club foundation’s trustees.
This move was outlined in a previous statement on Saturday, while he aims to protect the Stamford Bridge club following Russia’s invasion of its neighbour.
Meanwhile, Abramovich who bought Chelsea in a £140m deal in 2003, is owed £1.5billion in loans, debt which he says he will not ask debtors to pay back the debt.
