Chelsea ‘already partially laying off staff’ after Abramovich is sanctioned

Former Chelsea winger, Pat Nevin has claimed that the club has already begun “partially laying off” some of their staff.

This follows the sanctions imposed on the Blues owner, Roman Abramovich, on Thursday.

Abramovich has had his assets frozen by the UK Government and that will have big implications for the west London club.

Chelsea are currently unable to sell any tickets or merchandise and cannot offer new contracts to players.

Only supporters who are season ticket holders will be able to attend matches at Stamford Bridge.

A reduced attendance is likely to have an impact on the staff needed on a match day.

And Nevin reveals there have already been some who have been affected.

Considering whether people at the club can continue to be paid, I can tell you now that some of the people have been partially laid off already, so they will not be working.

If that happens with the stewarding, and they don’t think they will be paid, do you think they will turn up? No, they won’t and if they don’t turn up you won’t get a game on,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.
