Chelsea hotel worries
Chelsea players were kicked out of their hotel rooms early and forced to squeeze onto a single coach due to the sanctions placed on the club.
Timo Werner has revealed how the players were impacted after the UK Government put an end to the Blues’ unnecessary spending due to owner Roman Abramovich’s ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin.
Speaking to The Mirror, Werner explained: “For example, our bags and stuff had to be out of our rooms by 11am when we had a Champions League game where before our bags could stay in the room for as long as we stay in the room. It was little things which were a bit funny. Not things to worry about.
“We felt we couldn’t come to the game with two buses anymore, we had to be a bit closer together, we had to save money at some points which is different to what we were used to in the hotel and somewhere else.
“Of course we heard a lot in the press and the media. What’s going on, who is the new owner, what happens if we don’t find a new owner.
“I think the club did a very good job to keep everything away from us as much as possible.”
