The Premier League disqualifies Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich as a director of the club after the oligarch was sanctioned by the UK government.
Abramovich had his British assets – including Chelsea – frozen on Thursday as part of the government’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The move put the Russian’s prospective sale of the club on hold.
The Premier League said Abramovich’s disqualification would “not impact on the club’s ability to train and play”.
