Thomas Tuchel said after the game listen, if they show solidarity, they show solidarity and they should do it together. They take the knee together. If an important person from another club or from their club unfortunately dies, they show a moment of respect. Now is not the time to give other messages. This is the moment to show respect.

According to Tuchel they want them to do it because that’s what they like as a club. they show respect as a club and they need their fans to commit to this minute of applause at this moment. they do it for Ukraine. There is no second opinion about the situation there and that they have their thoughts and their support and they should stand together as a club. This is not the moment for other messages.


The club is up for sale

Roman Abramovich confirmed on Wednesday that he had put the club up for sale after 19 years of ownership, days after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Abramovich said in a statement that it was never about business or money for him, but about pure passion for the game and the club.

Additionally, according to Roman, he has directed his team to set up a charitable foundation to which all net proceeds from the sale will be donated. The fund will be for the benefit of all victims of the war in Ukraine. This includes providing critical funds to meet the immediate and immediate needs of victims, as well as supporting long-term recovery efforts.
