Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich ‘more supportive’ than ever despite takeover talk

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has hailed owner Roman Abramovich for his continued investment in the club and support from the top.

Reports have suggested in recent times that there is plenty of interest in a potential takeover at Stamford Bridge.

Abramovich bought the club back in 2003, and the 53-year-old is still showing his commitment to the cause.

The Russian billionaire axed Maurizio Sarri last summer and brought in Frank Lampard to lead the team forward.

And the Chelsea legend has been promised further funds in the transfer market this month to help secure the Blues Champions League football next term.

Away from the footballing side of things, Buck has also praised Abramovich for his support in the club’s new project – an anti-Semitism art project at the Bridge.

The Chelsea owner commissioned a 12-metre mural that will pay tribute to three Jewish footballers sent to Nazi concentration camps in WWII.

British-Israeli artist Solomon Souza will complete the new Stamford Bridge mural as part of Chelsea’s Say No To Anti-Semitism campaign, and to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27.

Buck revealed Abramovich hopes the project can help further the club’s fight against discrimination in all forms.

Discussing the Blues owner, Chelsea chairman Buck said: “As far as we’re concerned on a day-to-day basis Mr Abramovich is even more supportive than ever, in all aspects of the club.

“Mr Abramovich is very interested in art, and he had the idea to raise awareness through this project, for people to focus on the problem.

“So the mural has been developed from that idea, and of course it is being donated by Mr Abramovich. We’ve always looked at our efforts here as focusing on awareness, and education and remembrance, keeping in mind that history sometimes repeats itself.
