Intelligent Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been clever in ensuring the club continue to compete at the very top despite spending less than our rivals Manchester United and Manchester City in recent seasons according to former Russia coach Leonid Slutsky, who is also a friend of Abramovich.
“Maybe 10 years ago he changed the system in England, it was like ‘boom’,” Slutsky told The Telegraph.
“But now he has another way, it’s a very successful way and it’s possible only for people who are very intelligent.
“The first way, for me, is easier with the money and buy, buy, buy.
“Now it’s more difficult, but he is being successful in another way.
“ He’s not any more the richest guy, number one, like Man City or Man United, but he continues to be the number one owner and Chelsea are the number one. It’s excellent.”
