Chelsea fans will love what Bruce Buck said about Roman Abramovich and the Blues

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck insists Roman Abramovich is “even more supportive than ever” to the club. There have been rumours that Abramovich plans to sell Chelsea. However, in the recently released accounts, it showed that Abramovich put in around £250million of his own money into the club. "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," Chelsea chairman Buck told the Press Association. "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. "And with the Holocaust, we’ve got to make sure that it is remembered with the hope that something like that doesn’t happen again. Recent incidents of discrimination in sport and other areas make this all the more important. Racism and discrimination is not just a football problem, a societal problem that is reflected in football stadia. "This piece of art has a football theme and hopefully it will resonate with our fans. Mr Abramovich cares deeply about not just anti-Semitism but all forms of discrimination. We’ve focused on anti-Semitism as a special project even though we continue projects to fight all kinds of discrimination. But there hadn't been anything like this as a project and that’s why we developed it." Source-Football.london Join us on Telegram!
