Chelsea No2 Clarke delighted by Abramovich return

Clarke said: “We’re looking forward to seeing him. I don’t think there is any question he is not committed to Chelsea.

“He’s proven that since he took over the mantle from Ken Bates, he doesn’t have to prove anything.

“It’s good when you see him in and around the team. He’s comfortable and enjoys being with them. It’ll be good for the atmosphere that he’s back.”
