Roman Abramovich explains his two main aims as owner of Chelsea

Roman Abramovich says he has two main aims as the owner of Chelsea: to create world-class teams and ensure the club plays s positive role in the community, Football London reports.

Abramovich took over as owner at Stamford Bridge nearly 18 years ago, and has overseen an unprecedented reign of success in West London with four of their six English titles coming over a period of 12 years since he took charge.

He has also spent big money since arriving in London, with Chelsea spending record sums in the years following his arrival to assemble a squad that consistently challenged in England and Europe.

Abramovich rarely speaks publicly on any matter, but did so recently after deciding to end Frank Lampard’s reign as manager at Chelsea – the first time he had done so in 15 managerial changes.

And now the Chelsea owner has revealed what his main aims were on and off the pitch for the club when he took over – and why they are important.

To create world-class teams on the pitch; and to ensure the club plays a positive role in all of its communities,” Abramovich told Forbes.

“First of all, is when you say something, you have to always follow through. And, I guess, that is especially if you’re a person who doesn’t say much. So, what you do say is very important.

“Second, football is society. Football is part of society and society is part of football. So, it’s the natural state of things for football to be in be involved, to support the community, and to be present in the community.

“The ambitions are as true now as they were when I first became owner and I hope that can be seen through the work we have been doing on and off the pitch over the last 17 years.

“I think the trophies speak for themselves and show what we as a club have been able to achieve over these years, and it’s my goal for us to keep winning trophies going forward and build for the future.

“Chelsea has a very rich history, and I feel extremely fortunate to a play a part in that. The club was here before me, and will be here after me, but my job is to ensure we are as successful as we can be today, as well as build for the future. That’s why the success of our academy at Cobham is so important to me.”
