‘Abramovich has done incredible job, I’ll keep Marina Granovskaia’: Nick Candy outline actions if he takes over Chelsea

Chelsea’s potential new owner, Nick Candy, has insisted that Roman Abramovich has done an incredible job at the West London club.

The British billionaire also promised that he would keep the likes of Marina Granovskaia and Bruce Buck at Chelsea if his consortium ends up buying Chelsea from Abramovich.

Recall that the deadline for bids to be made to buy Chelsea passed on Friday night, and Candy’s Blue Football Consortium, backed by cash from Europe, USA, and South Korea, remains in the running to buy the reigning Champions League holders.

Candy, a lifelong Chelsea supporter, faces competition to complete a takeover which will be handled by The Raine Group, who want to finalize a quick sale with the West London club after the British Government’s decision to sanction Abramovich.

“On the pitch and in the transfer market, it is simple – follow the model. It has not failed us and it is done really well,” Candy told The Sun.

“The last 20 years have been brilliant on the pitch. We have played glorious football, won everything, and Roman has done an incredible job with his team.”

He added: “If I got hold of the club, I would not change Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia.

“And if they want to stay I would love them to stay. Why change something that is brilliant?

“But I don’t think we should end up like Manchester United where we’ve one rich family that owns Chelsea and there should be a new benchmark of owning football clubs.”

Chelsea qualify for FA Cup semi-final – FA Cup details

Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech scored for Chelsea as they beat Middlesbrough 2-0 to qualify for the semi-final of the FA Cup.

The win ended the Championship club’s remarkable run in the competition.

Middlesbrough had eliminated Manchester United on penalties in the fourth round and scored an extra-time winner to defeat Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round.

However, Chris Wilder’s side came unstuck against Chelsea on Saturday.

Romelu Lukaku tapped into an empty net on 15 minutes to help Chelsea to an early lead before Hakim Ziyech doubled their advantage with a superb finish from the edge of the 18-yard box.

Thomas Tuchel’s men go into the international break on the back of a 13-game unbeaten run from January.
