Due to sanctions imposed by the United Kingdom against Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Chelsea are facing consequences on a daily basis off the field. According to the publication of the Spanish newspaper Marca this Tuesday (5/4), financial sanctions have been imposed on the London club.
One of the points the paper highlighted was regarding employees who were associated with Abramovich’s companies. According to Marka, professionals in areas such as communications, marketing, human resources, medicine and physiotherapy had to be laid off.
However, employees working directly with the core team remain proactive. In the case of executives, they cannot take any kind of decision even though they remain in their posts. Contracts and contract renewals are also blocked.
The article also stated that in order for the team to face Middlesbrough, the FA Cup quarter-finals on 19 March, the players had to pay diesel for the bus out of their own pocket to reach the appointment.
The team returns to the field to face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League at Stamfrod Bridge this Wednesday (6/4).
