Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has revealed an awkward moment that happened three years ago when he almost killed club owner Roman Abramovich while on holidays in the Isle of Arran – an island off the coast of Scotland in the United Kingdom.

According to the former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin, he has revealed how he narrowly avoided running over the Russian tycoon with his car when he turned a corner while driving around the Isle of Arran.

The 56-year-old admitted “just missed” colliding head-on with Abramovich who was cycling on the island off the Ayrshire coast.

Abramovich and a group of friends had sailed round Scotland’s west coast on his super yacht during the summer of 2015 when the incident occurred.

He said: “About three years ago I was on holiday in Arran and I was driving up the north side of Arran. Every time you go on holiday there you drive round the whole island.

“I came round a corner at the top just before Lochranza and I nearly hit a guy on a bike.

“I just got out the way at the last moment, I could have killed the guy. It was Roman Abramovich.

“What a story that would have been if I had killed Roman Abramovich. I just missed him.

“His yacht was off the coast and he was cycling round.

“He doesn’t know to this day that it was me.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.

  1. Pat who I did not know as a player having left England 1967 accosted me a couple of years ago after a season end game on the underground to heathrow . I was loaded with bags for an international flight as we got off the train at heathrow Pat offered to help me. Not knowing who he was I thought he was some wise guy maybe wanting to do a runner with a bag. He chatted with me going to departure area finally he told me his name which I only knew from his writings on the CFC site, so today as I still depart u k after season home game I look for Pat on the underground as I owe him a bag to carry for me. Season greetings to all specially to those who like me have to be up at 4am for a noon game.
