Roman Abramovich's Impact On EPL Debated 10 Years After Buying Chelsea
Published July 2, 2013
ABRAMOVICH EVOLUTION: In London, Bruce Buck wrote "few people could have comprehended" 10 years ago how Abramovich’s ownership would quickly transform Chelsea, taking them "from a club facing mid-table mediocrity and near bankruptcy to become one of the most formidable football teams in the world." The Abramovich Revolution "has really been the Abramovich Evolution." He has "built probably the best training facilities in Europe." He has "invested millions in establishing a world-class squad and a superb academy, one of the elite youth development programmes in Europe" (LONDON TIMES, 7/1).
