‘Real truth behind Lampard sacking’- Blues owner Roman Abramovich finally speaks out

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich risked the wrath of fans when he sacked club legend Frank Lampard in January following a run of poor results.

Lampard’s replacement Thomas Tuchel is unbeaten in his first 13 games, into the last eight of the Champions League and is preparing for Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Sheffield United.

Abramovich admits he is ‘comfortable making the right changes at the right time’ after sacking club legend Frank Lampard.

Abramovich told Forbes: “I think we are pragmatic in our choices.

“And we are comfortable making the right changes at the right time to ensure we can achieve our long-term ambitions.

“I hope it also says something about the clarity of the long-term ambition of the club. Those who join understand the objectives both on the pitch, as well as the wider positive role the club plays in the community.”
