Chelsea fans have been urged to stop the “completely inappropriate” chanting of Roman Abramovich’s name by the UK Government.
The Stamford Bridge faithful fans have shown their support for the Blues honcho by chanting the Russian oligarchs name in recent weeks.
We recognise the strength of feeling around people’s clubs but that does not excuse behaviour which is completely inappropriate at this time. I think people can show passion and support for their club without resorting to that sort of stuff, Johnson said, through his spokesperson, as reported by Sky Sports.
Boris Johnson has advised the fans to show support for their club, just not to the man who has ties to the leader of an invasion of Ukraine. The Russian owner has brought unprecedented success to the club, but it’s time to move on.
Johnson’s spokesperson added: “We are open to the sale of the club, we would consider an application for a licence to allow that to happen in the right circumstances.” This is good news for Chelsea fans, with the situation of their club currently up in the air.
