Abramovich launch legal action against Sunday Times

Abramovich is upset after the newspaper claimed he was looking to sell the Blues.

A statement from Chelsea stated: “Defamation proceedings will be commenced tomorrow (Monday) in London by Roman Abramovich against the publishers of The Sunday Times.

“This follows the publication by them of false claims that he wants to sell his interest in Chelsea FC.

“Mr Abramovich has already made quite clear, through the directors of Chelsea, that he has no intention of doing so and that neither he nor anyone upon his behalf has been pursuing any such course of action.”
