Boris Johnson urges Chelsea fans to stop chanting Abramovich's name

Prime Minister Boris Johnson believes the chants are completely inappropriate.

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the British government due to his tie with Vladimir Putin.

All his assets were frozen including Chelsea and the club is under a special license that allows them to operate.

Boris Johnson’s official spokesman urges Chelsea supporters to not chant Abramovich’s name due to his tie with Putin who invaded Ukraine.

“We recognise the strength of feeling around people’s clubs but that does not excuse behaviour which is completely inappropriate at this time,” he said.

“I think people can show passion and support for their club without resorting to that sort of stuff.”

“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,” the spokesman said.

“But it is for Chelsea to determine the exact process. My understanding is potential buyers would approach the club, who would then need to apply for a further amended licence to facilitate the sale. As far as I’m aware that hasn’t happened at this point.”
