Chelsea complete the trophy collection under President Abramovich’s reign. In 2013, Chelsea participated in the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time but lost to Corinthians in the final. At the last FIFA Club World Cup, “The Blues” defeated another representative of the Brazilian tournament.

In May 2021, Abramovich went to Portugal to watch the Champions League final between Chelsea and Man City. He witnessed the fierce match of coach Thomas Tuchel’s team to defeat Man City and win the Champions League for the second time.

President Abramovich congratulated Tuchel, who at that time was only an interim coach, but led Chelsea to the top. The way Chelsea won the Champions League 2020/21 was similar to the 2011/12 season. At that time, Roberto Di Matteo was appointed by Abramovich as an interim coach but also unexpectedly led Chelsea to win the Champions League.

Abramovich has been the new owner of Chelsea since June 2003. At that time, Chelsea was inferior to MU and Arsenal in the Premier League. Abramovich outlined a strategy to bring Chelsea “makeover” by spending money to upgrade the squad. He also spent a lot of money to upgrade the Chelsea youth training system (the current Cobham center) with the ambition of making Chelsea a place to discover and raise the number one young player in Europe.

After only 2 years under President Abramovich, Chelsea won the Premier League. This is the moment to celebrate the championship of “The Blues” in the Premier League 2004/05.

Abramovich with Jose Mourinho and the Chelsea coaching staff celebrate the 2004/05 Premier League crown. At that time, Abramovich invited Mourinho, who had just led Porto to win the Champions League, to London to lead Chelsea.

Abramovich came to Chelsea for his love of football. During his first few years at Chelsea, Abramovich rarely missed the club’s game at Stamford Bridge. Later, when the pressure of business was heavier, Abramovich chose the match to come to Stamford Bridge. In recent years, because of problems off the pitch, Abramovich is no longer with Chelsea in the Premier League.

Abramovich once said this was the most memorable moment of his investment in football. From the first day he took over at Chelsea, Abramovich aspired to help the club win its first Champions League trophy. It was not until the 2011/12 season that Chelsea completed the goal after defeating Bayern Munich. Abramovich has spent billions of pounds to invest in the squad and enjoy the feeling of winning the Champions League.

On the morning of March 3, Abramovich announced that he was preparing to sell Chelsea. He was cornered and had no choice. According to the Telegraph, Abramovich wrote off his £2 billion debt to Chelsea and used all the proceeds from the sale of the club to charity.
