Tottenham boss Antonio Conte speaks out on Chelsea sanctions after Abramovich punished


Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has spoken out on his former club Chelsea’s current situation after owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned on Thursday morning – claiming the ordeal was a ‘real pity’.

The Chelsea chief signalled his intentions to sell the club last week in the ‘best interests of the public’ following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in late February.

Having joined the club in 2003, Abramovich’s successful 19-year-stint is set to come to an end after the UK Government imposed sanctions upon the Russian and six other oligarchs were reprimanded on Thursday morning.

The club can no longer sell or buy players, renew contracts, sell match day tickets or even have fans travel to away matches under the new regulations.

Authorities have also blocked the sale of the club that Abramovich was looking for earlier this month by freezing his assets, imposing travel bans and prohibiting transactions with UK individuals.

And as the restrictions have now seriously impacted the club, Conte has offered his sympathy over the situation, calling it a ‘real pity’.
