It is no longer news that the British government have metted out strong sanctions on Chelsea football club and Roman Abrahmovic as a result of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
Roman Abrahmovic prior to the Sanction had been actively trying to sell the club as he had already announced he was selling the club and stepping down as the CEO of the London club.
A lot of mixed reactions followed as a result of the sanction and most recently Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp has thrown his weight behind the British government as he believes they made the right move.
In the same Vein he responded to a reporter asking if he had spoken to the blues head coach where he confirmed that he was no close friends to his fellow country man.
“I don’t speak to him(Thomas Tuchel) that often. The Chelsea employees are not responsible for what is happening. One man is responsible for that, and it’s Vladimir Putin.” the ex Dortmund manager said
“I don’t know about Roman Abramovich’s role in all of this but you can say he is close [to Putin]. I think what the Government did is right.”
Liverpool head to the Amex stadium to take on Brighton and Hove Albion as the continue their charge for a premier league title.
