On Thursday, Abramovich’s assets were frozen by the UK government and he was also issued with a travel ban. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine there have been question marks over the 55-year-old and his links with Vladmir Putin. Chelsea will still be allowed to play, having been given a special sporting licence, which allows football activities to continue. Conte spent two years at Stamford Bridge, where he won the Premier League title. “Honestly, it’s a pity, also because I was coach in this club, in Chelsea, I enjoyed two seasons. “Also, I won two titles, I worked in this club. “It’s a pity to listen to this situation, it’s not simple for the players, it’s not simple for Thomas Tuchel, for the fans, for the whole environment, Chelsea environment,” Conte told a press conference today.
