Roman Abramovich does not attend Chelsea’s Champions League clash despite making a trip to London on Tuesday night.
Despite winning 4-0 at home Chelsea owner was absent to cheer up his team against Juventus.
Chelsea owner Abramovich has been pictured at Stamford Bridge along with Israel’s current president Isaac Herzog to support the club’s anti Semitism initiatives.
But Abramovich will instead attend another charity event rather than his club’s tie with Juventus. Abramovich is one of English football’s most committed foreign owners despite his ongoing visa issues and has generously supported Covid charity initiatives as well as other worthy causes.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was asked whether Abramovich was a “special owner” and if he wanted to “put on a show” for the Russian billionaire.
Tuchel said: “I think first and most important, he is a huge football fan. He is in love with the game, with the details.
“He wants to know everything about what’s going on here in Cobham and we keep him informed and keep him posted because he has a genuine interest and love for the game. This is the most important and makes things very special.
“I have a feeling it’s about this. He wants for this, to be entertained, to be competitive and he wants to have the right attitude on the pitch. This is what he created here, it’s amazing. We are blessed to enjoy our time here in this club and to keep on progressing.”
