Thomas Tuchel admits Roman Abramovic decision will not affect his club daily activities.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has stated that Roman Abramovic decision to hand over the care of the club to the charity won’t change any for him.

The owner of the club Roman Abramovic handed the stewardship and care of the club to the charity foundation following the attack of Russia on Ukraine.

There have been speculations that Chelsea should be seized from the Russia billionaire but instead Abramovic left the club in the hands of club’s charity foundation.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia and technical and performance adviser Petr Cech are responsible for running the club with Abramovich, until this weekend, retaining final sign-off on big decisions including the future of head coaches and player transfers.

Although his statement made no mention of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, the Russian billionaire’s ties with Chelsea had attracted extra scrutiny that Tuchel admitted was affecting his team’s preparation for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.

Following the announcement of Abramovic Thomas Tuchel said that the decision will not affect him on daily basis.

“For the news yesterday, I think it will change nothing for me on a daily basis. This is how I understand it. I’m in close contact with Marina and Petr Cech to the run the first team and to give my input and give my very best so we are able to win football matches. This will not change and I think it will not change with the news from yesterday.”

Earlier Sunday, the club released a statement on the situation in Ukraine, calling it “horrific and devastating.”
