Lampard speaks on UK govt sanctions on Abramovich

Everton manager Frank Lampard has confessed that Chelsea is going through a “difficult time” following the UK government’s sanctioning of its owner, Roman Abramovich.

As part of its response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the UK government sanctioned Abramovich and a number of other Russian oligarchs.

The fines are designed to prevent Abramovich from profiting from Chelsea.

“I haven’t seen the headlines about people losing their jobs,” Lampard, a Chelsea legend, said during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Everton’s Premier League match against Wolves. “But clearly I managed there for almost two years, I played there for 13 years, so I have plenty of friends at the club and behind the scenes.”

“Obviously, from a human level, I care about it, especially if it means people are losing their jobs. I don’t know the details on it.

“I care about the fans of Chelsea who will be there from the beginning and before us and will be there after us.

“It is a tough moment for the club. I don’t want to hang on to it too much because I am the manager of Everton and that is absolutely my priority.

“But of course on a human level, for people who are just doing their jobs and giving everything to their jobs – and if those jobs are in danger – you care a lot about that.”
