JOHN TERRY hails Roman Abramovich as ‘the best owner in the world’ following news that the Russian is set to sell the club.
Abramovich confirmed on Wednesday that he is selling Chelsea after 19 trophy-laden years at Stamford Bridge.
During that time, the Blues legend Terry won five Premier League titles and the prestigious FA Cup and Champions League.
With Abramovich’s time at the club seemingly coming to an end, the former captain has expressed his gratitude to the longtime Chelsea owner.
Terry, 41, posted on Instagram: “Thank you Roman. Best owner in the WORLD.”
Abramovich put Chelsea up for sale as government sanctions threaten his fortune amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
He swore to provide any more profit than expected £3 billion settlement for victims of the Ukraine war – but he refused to condemn the actions of the tyrant Vladimir Putin.
The billionaire also revealed that he will write off a debt of 1.5 billion pounds Chelsea owes him.

The announcement came just hours before the European champions’ 3-2 FA Cup win over Luton Town.
Chelsea looked shaken as they were forced to come from behind twice, with Abramovich’s statement still fresh.
But coach Thomas Tuchel believes his players have not – and will not – be affected by it.
The German also feels that if Abramovich believes it is the right decision to sell Chelsea, it must be the correct move.
Tuchel told BBC One: “I probably heard it a little earlier than you but it’s still so close to the start, we’ve been hearing the rumours all day long, seen on TV, when we’ve had team meetings and eaten. drink together.everyone talks about it.
I think every decision he makes is the right one, it’s his choice, his club, I don’t have to comment.
“It’s big news, let’s wait and see for the best and see what the day brings.
“I think every decision he makes is the right one, it’s his choice, his club, I don’t have to comment.
“In the short term for us as a team, staff and players, hopefully not too much [disruption]maybe it won’t even change anything, but the situation right now is out there and a big one so I can understand a lot of the reports.
“We try to eliminate noise and stay focused, which isn’t always easy, but we showed today we did.
“We don’t live on an island, players have internet – some are more concerned, to play on the same day a match where concentration is absolutely important is not easy and makes it difficult. into a bigger show.”
