John Terry praised Roman Abramovich , after the tycoon will leave Chelsea . The comments were criticized by British officials.
Chelsea will be sold by Abramovich, after the Russian billionaire was dragged into the Russia vs Ukraine war . Abramovich is said to be close to Russian President Vladimir Putin , who started the war last week.
Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003, and turned the West London club into a new powerhouse in Europe. A total of 21 trophies can be won, including 5 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 2 Champions League trophies, 2 Europa League trophies, to the European Super Cup and Club World Cup.
Chelsea’s success in the Abramovich era was felt by John Terry, a Chelsea player who had a career from 1995 to 2017. Terry, who was able to enjoy many trophies under Abramovich’s leadership, immediately said his goodbyes on his social media.
“The best owner in the world,” Terry tweeted, accompanied by three blue hearts and mentioning the Chelsea account.
One of them is from Chris Bryant, a member of the British Parliament from the Labor Party. Bryant reminds Terry that his boss got a lot of people killed in Ukraine.
“I think you should delete this tweet as soon as possible. Ukrainians are being bombed, shot at and killed while you celebrate Abramovich,” he tweeted.
Furthermore, Bryant regretted Terry praising Abramovich. Moreover, Terry is also the former captain of the England national team.
“I don’t know if you’ve seen this but he [ John Terry ] has uploaded a photo with Roman Abramovich . What do Ukrainians think of the former England football captain?” he criticized, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
