Roman Abramovich Providing Full Support Leonid Slutsky

Roman Abramovich is providing as much support as possible to his buddy Leonid Slutsky to get him placed as a manager at a Premiership club. The latter has disclosed that himself.


So far nobody from Russia has been able to earn the manager’s spot at any of the English clubs which are in the Premiership. But, Slutsky wants to break the ice and he has experience under his belt to strengthen his case as well.

He is an experienced manager both at the club and at the international level. He has been at the helm of affairs for CSKA Moscow which makes regular Champions League appearances and also for his country’s team.

These days he is in UK and its Abramovich only who has arranged for his lodging there and not only that, the business tycoon has allowed his compatriot to come to the training ground of the Blues as well at any time.

Apart from that, whichever Premiership game Slutsky desires to watch live, Abramovich ensures his entry to the stadium.

Also, Abramovich is giving Slutsky a lot of information about how soccer works in UK, how he should talk to the club’s bosses if he is called for a meeting and many more things.

AZPILICUETA PRAISES LEGEND LAMPARD AND DROGBA

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has heaped praises on former Blues players Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.


The Spanish footballer is having a great spell this term at Stamford Bridge but he took out time to remember the top ex-stars of the club.

Azpilicueta hailed the former Premier League duo, calling them his idols. The defender joined the club in 2012 but he also had spent enough time with them to set them apart from the rest.

“Very much Lampard and Drogba. I like the way they played and even more so when I came here and I had the chance to have them in the dressing room,” Azpilicueta said.

Lampard is the record scorer for the Blues, aside breaking goals’ record even as a midfielder. He featured in over four hundred games for the club.

MOYES – CHELSEA NOT SURE OF TITLE YET

Sunderland manager David Moyes has declared that Premier League log leaders Chelsea are not yet sure of clinching the title, despite losing at home to them.


The former Manchester United coach said it was too early for everyone to start proclaiming Antonio Conte a winner this term.

Conte supervised a 1-0 victory over Sunderland this week to make it ten straight wins in the Premier League this season. The victory sent them six points clear of second-placed Liverpool. Liverpool defeated Middlesbrough 3-0 away while former runners up Arsenal lost to Everton 2-1 to lose their spot to the Reds. The Gunners have the same points and goals difference but they lost their season opener to Liverpool, hence placing third.

According to Moyes, Chelsea will have all teams trying to stop them hence a title win is not assured.

“It’s early to say that [Chelsea winning the Premier League]. Everybody will be trying to find ways of stopping them.

“We tried and we didn’t do a bad job in restricting them to just a few clear-cut opportunities,” Moyes said after the Black Cats’ loss

Conte did not humiliate United

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has stated that he did not humiliate Manchester United.


It is believed that Jose Mourinho had told the Chelsea boss after the match that his action has embarrassed his team and that he was not pleased with this behavior.

Antonio Conte said that this was not his intention and he only wanted to get the fans behind the team. He said that as a former player he knows how players feel on nights like these and that he will never do anything to humiliate an opposing team. He stated that he always respects opponents and that he is only a competitor on the field.

Chelsea beat Manchester United 4-0 in a match that saw Jose Mourinho returned to Chelsea after the club sacked him. Unfortunately, it does not work out for the Portuguese manager as his side concede a goal in the first minute of the game. Manchester United will not recover from going behind and will fail to take control of the match. Instead, they will concede another goal from Gary Cahill.

FABREGAS DEBUNKS EXIT RUMOUR

Spain international Cesc Fabregas has denied rumours making the rounds from even renowned sport news outlets that he was set to leave Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports say.


The reports claim that the Chelsea player was surplus to coach Antonio Conte’s requirements this term. Fabregas denied the story, claiming his immediate future is assured at Chelsea.

The former Barcelona play maker featured for his club when they played Bristol Rovers in the Football League Cup, but he has only played a game in the Premier League this season. In the game he played, he came on as a substitute against Watford. In the 3-0 comfortable victory over Burnley over the weekend, Conte didn’t seem it fit to add him to the squad when he needed to seal the victory as the opponents were threatening despite being two goals down. Fabregas remained an unused substitute, with Conte sending Pedro, Batshuayi, and Victor Moses to get the third goal.

After the Saturday win, the media was rife with reports that Fabregas had grown frustrated with his lack of playing time, and Conte had told him he could leave if he wanted. The reports were so believable that Fabregas had to take to popular social media platform Twitter to deny the allegations.
“Contrary to what has been written, the manager and I have a good relationship, and he has NEVER told me that I can leave,” Fabregas started in a series of tweets responding directly to the allegations.

Atletico not interested in Costa

Diego Costa has never been a target for Atletico Madrid according to the club’s president Enrique Cerezo. He said that these are all rumors created by the media and that the Spanish club has never made any attempt to sign the player.


The Atletico Madrid’s president that the Diego Costa is a Chelsea player and that it is wrong to be linking him to his club. He said that the player belongs to the London team and that at the moment there is no intention by the Spanish club to make a bid for the player.

There were rumors during the transfer window that Diego Costa might be going to Atletico Madrid in the summer, but the reports have subsided since then. Antonio Conte has recently stated that Diego Costa is a Chelsea player and that he is not going anywhere in the summer. The new Chelsea manager said that each big team needs a quality striker and that Chelsea are counting on Costa in order to deliver the goals. He said that he is building a team around Diego Costa and that he is not going to let him go anywhere.
