I’m walking away from Chelsea after 62 years over Abramovich crisis.. can’t take anymore, sobs 70- year-old fan


A 70-YEAR-OLD Chelsea fan is walking away from the club after 62 YEARS of support over the  Roman Abramovich ownership crisis. Pat, who was born around the corner from Stamford Bridge, has instead chosen to get behind League Two Sutton United.

The European champions have been heavily affecte by the sanctions imposed on owner Abramovich by the UK government. Abramovich had his assets frozen due to his close ties with Russian president Vladimir Putin, who authorised the invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.

Chelsea are banned from selling home and away match tickets , as well as selling merchandise. The club are also not allowed to buy or sell players... or renew deals of soon-to-be out of contract stars . Speaking through tears, Pat told talkSPORT :

"I’ve been a Chelsea fan for 62 years, I started supporting Chelsea in the 50s and I’m absolutely… “Listen, what some Chelsea fans have been doing i unforgivable. We’ve got to stand up and be counte but I’ve now, myself and my twin brother, we’ve walked away from Chelsea.

“This is true, he went out yesterday and he bought two shirts for Sutton United. “He phoned me up and said, ‘I’ve got two shirts here’, and asked them who they were for and he said ‘Sutton United. We can’t carry on supporting Chelsea’.
