“The best club owner ever” – Football fans pay emotional tributes to Abramovich amid his exit
The Roman Abramovich era at Chelsea football club has finally come to an unexpected and painful end due to the Russian inversion of Ukraine which led to the UK sanctions on the Russian billionaire.

The Russian billionaire took over as the Chelsea owner in July 2003 and helped them to become a world-class football club, investing a lot of money into the club to help them to win 5 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cup titles, 2 Champions League titles, 2 Europa League titles, 3 League Cup titles, 2 English Super Cup titles, 1 UEFA Super Cup, and a FIFA Club World Cup.
He attracted much love from the Chelsea fans and a host of other football fans due to his passion for the game as he brought the winning mentally into the Chelsea football club, helping both the senior team, the Women’s team, and the Academy team to win a lot of trophies during his 19 years reign at the club.
Upon his exit from the club, Chelsea fans and other football fans around the world have sent their tributes to the Russian billionaire, with many labeling him “the best Club owner ever” given he has not only left the club as a former owner, but Abramovich has also left Chelsea as a legend, and he will forever remain in the heart of the Blues faithful for all his works at the club.
He has also included some clauses that would make the new owner keep investing in the club to allow them to remain a top team in Europe, and he will be missed by everyone connected to the Chelsea football club.
Below are some comments from football fans around the world, including many rival fans who also showed their love for him despite not supporting Chelsea FC.
