Abramovich Puts Decent Money for Russia

in News & Features

Russian billionaire is giving out $40 million for his country’s national football team which I doubt would go far enough to making his country a force to reckon in world competitions. Chelsea reached the top of the league through the money of Abramovich but we are talking about a huge amount. The money given to Russian football is just the price of a star player in Chelsea.

For political, social and patriot reasons, I salute Abramovich.

Few of the greatest athletes in any sport could write a fairy tale story book ending as Zidane is presented with. Few if perhaps none of them came out of retirement to participate in the greatest sporting event in the world and show mastery and dominance across different generations.
