Rival groups to the Ricketts consortium’s bid for ownership of Chelsea are reportedly enraged at what they perceive to be the preferential treatment given to the Chicago Cubs’ owners, as the battle to succeed Roman Abramovich heats up.

According to reports, one of the four shortlisted groups believes the process’ regulations have been ‘breached’ after Bruce Buck, the club’s chairman, arranged a meeting between Tom Ricketts and former Blues player Paul Canoville.

Canoville has publicly urged for the Ricketts’ application to be rejected due to previous racial comments made by Joe, the family’s head.

‘If they want the Ricketts family to purchase the club from Roman Abramovich, they should inform the rest of us immediately and save us from what will be an enormous amount of effort,’ the bid consultant stated.

The controversy began when a letter sent to bidding groups on March 1 stated unequivocally that no communication with the CEO should occur during the sales process.

Despite this, Tom Ricketts, Joe’s son, approached Buck and requested that he convene a meeting with Canoville, the club’s first black player, after the family became aware of the growing hostility to their proposals among the Chelsea faithful.
