Lampard sends message to Abramovic after Chelsea boss puts club on market

Frank Lampard admits he is thankful his Chelsea career coincided with Roman Abramovich’s reign, with rumours that he is now looking to sell the Blues

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Abramovich’s reported ties with Vladimir Putin have brought his ownership of the club into sharp focus and a sale, and reports have claimed that a sale could go through as early as the Champions League holders next Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.

The Russian is reportedly panicking with all the sanctions that are being placed on Russian citizens in the UK and has already put his flat and his house up for sale as he looks to clear house.

Lampard refused to be drawn on the uncertainty surrounding his former club, but insists he always felt the benefit of Abramovich’s support even during the latter days of his managerial tenure which was brought to an abrupt end just over a year ago.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup tie against Borehamwood, the now Everton manager said: ‘I don’t I have no knowledge, I only read what you read.

‘I’m not at Chelsea any more, I had an amazing time at Chelsea. If you say you take as you find I can only be very thankful that I was in a period at the club which Roman Abramovich came into and changed the face of it and on the football level was very successful.

‘I had absolute support in my time as a player and as a manager whatever people think from the outside. I’ve got no comment on them now, I’m Everton manager and I don’t have enough knowledge to give anything more than that.’

Abramovic has done so much for the club over the past decade and has made them one of the best in the business, but is it right that he is being forced to sell?
