Thomas Tuchel talks about his future as Chelsea manager

Chelsea Legend John Terry saw an interview with Poland First League Rights holder Canal Plus Sport pulled out over a social media post made by the defender in support of Roman Abramovich.

Terry posted to Twitter and Instagram this week to show his support for the Russian billionaire who bet Chelsea are for sale this week.

In parliament, the government was asked to sanction Abramovich, as it did with Alisher Usmanov and Igor Shuvalov.

But Abramovich, who owns a £150million home in London, is yet to receive a sanction from the government.

However, the Russian billionaire has made the decision to put Chelsea up for sale after 19 years as the club’s owner.

According to Abramovich, tributes poured in from blues fans, and Terry then added his own.

The former centre-back, who is employed by the club to work at the academy, posted a picture of himself with Abramovich, who lifted the Premier League title, with the caption: ‘The Best’ with a row of blue hearts.

This post was extremely controversial considering the Russian invasion Ukraine last week and the circumstances surrounding the sale of Abramovich.

And now Terry is facing consequences for the post as Canal Plus Sport cancels an interview with the former defender.

The previously recorded interview was dropped after Canal Plus Sport flagged the social media post as “deaf,” according to journalist Jakub Krupa.

And not only the Polish television station criticized Terry’s tweet, Labor MP Chris Bryant also called on the coach to remove the post.

He responded to the tweet with one of his own, writing, “This is appalling. I think John Terry you should delete this as soon as possible. The people of Ukraine are being bombed, shot at and murdered as they celebrate Abramovich.”

Bryant spoke in the House of Commons earlier this week to urge the government to sanction Abramovich and to criticize Terry for praising him. He said: “Some of us are concerned about why we are not moving forward with sanctioning individuals.

“It’s a mystery to me why Roman Abramovich hasn’t been sanctioned yet. The government itself knows that he has been involved in illegal activities and he is a person of concern to the government which is why they have not encouraged him to come to the UK.

“I don’t know why Alisher Usmanov hasn’t been sanctioned yet. It was sanctioned by the EU, but not by us.

“He owns Sutton Place, I don’t know why we don’t confiscate that asset. I don’t know why Britain hasn’t confiscated a single yacht, flat or property of any kind whilst across countries in Europe are able to do so.

“Finally, I’m wondering if she [Conservative MP Nadine Dorries] would condemn John Terry today.

“I don’t know if she saw this, but today he posted a photo of himself with Roman Abramovich, one of Putin’s cronies. What will the people of Ukraine think of the former England football captain?”
