FA told to strip Chelsea of every trophy won with Roman Abramovich

Former Liverpool player, Stan Collymore, has urged the English FA to strip Chelsea of every trophy they won with Roman Abramovich’s cash.

Collymore said the UK Government’s decision to freeze Abramovich’s assets over his links to Russian President Vladimir Putin called into question all Chelsea’s achievements during the 55-year-old’s two-decade ownership.

According to him, If Chelsea’s success was built on access to “dodgy” money, how could the 21 trophies won with Abramovich’s roubles be allowed to stand, he asked, adding that Juventus had titles stripped for match-fixing.

He believes that punishment should be retrospective as it would be for offences such as doping and match-fixing.
