Ex-Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge has given his verdict on Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.
Bridge told Goal and SPOX of Abramovich: “Roman loves Chelsea. He enjoyed being in the dressing room with us players.
“He would have loved to have been one of the lads. When he didn’t have time because of other obligations and we hadn’t seen him in a long time, we were always worried about him.
“He is very nice and down to earth despite all his money. In public, Roman likes to pretend he doesn’t speak English but he is actually good to talk to.
“When the players were on vacation back then and he happened to be in the area, he always contacted us. Once I was in the south of France at the same time as him so he invited me in to eat with him.”
