Vieira: Abramovic A Positive Force For Chelsea And Football

Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira reckoned Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich has been a positive force for football.

The United Kingdom government seized Chelsea last week and sanctioned Abramovic following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Vieira stated that Abramovic 19 years in charge of Chelsea has been positive for the game.

He said: “You just have to look at what Chelsea have won in the last 20 years.


“And the number of players their Academy has developed that have played in the Premier League and Championship is unbelievable.

“So, of course, his period at Chelsea has been positive. I think it’s been really good for football in general.”

    I truly love and admire Viera’s character personality. Saying his own thing and not one to follow the crowd.

    Spot on @Viera.

    Abrahamovic has been the most talked about when club football as evolved in Chelsea is anything to go by. I therefore find it here, a place to express my bitterness when UK seized Chelsea all because Abrahamovic has a personal relationship with Putin. Peace!
