Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich Behind Vitesse Takeover – Report

Georgian businessman Merab Jordania was said to have taken over Eredivisie outfit Vitesse earlier this week, but according to a report in Quote, it’s none other than Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich who is behind the deal.

The financial magazine claimed that Jordania is little more than a puppet for Abramovich, quoting an anonymous friend of the Russian, who reportedly stated: “De facto, it is Roman who has bought Vitesse.”


NOTE: Roman Abramovich's spokesperson from his private investment company Millhouse LLC has informed that a report of the Chelsea owner taking over Vitesse is untrue.

The story is too old to be commented.
