Chelsea’s manager Thomas Tuchel has vowed that the English club will not be destroyed by the sanctions on owner Roman Abramovich, according to reports in London.
Abramovich was one of seven more oligarchs slapped with fresh sanctions over the invasion following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Tuchel has no idea which direction the club will head once Abramovich is gone, but he will not worry about problems he cannot control.
“The level of impact it has, the news of today is big, in time we don’t know how big. We cannot influence it. That’s a good thing or a bad thing. It’s a fact.”
“So far we can trust each other and this will not change. As long as we have enough shirts and a bus to drive to the games we will be there and will compete hard,” he said.
“Everybody can be very sure that we focus on us, to keep the attitude and the mentality right on the training ground and within the team.”
