Klopp Blames Russia’s President Putin Over Chelsea’s Current Woes

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has reacted to the current challenges faced at Chelsea.

Naija News understands that the United Kingdom government had on Thursday frozen the assets of Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich.

The billionaire is one of seven wealthy Russian individuals who had sanctions placed on them by the government on Thursday.

The development has restricted the Blues from selling any ticket or merchandise and also stopping them from offering new contracts to players.

Feeling sorry for Thomas Tuchel’s side, Klopp said Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is responsible for Chelsea sanctions.

The German professional football manager while addressing the media on Friday, insisted no employee at Stamford Bridge is to blame.

Klopp has now agreed with the decision taken by the government.

He said: “I feel for him (Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel) and the players. It’s not a situation all the employees at Chelsea are responsible for.

“One man is and that’s Putin. I don’t know about Roman Abramovich’s role in all this, but you can say he is close. I think what the Government did is right.”
