It has achieved four FA Cups, Three league titles, two UEFA Cup Winner’s Cups and four League Cups. At Chelsea, a lot of players have come and gone but the spirit of the respected team remains.

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea football club in June 2003 from Ken Bates. The reported amount of the purchase was 140 million pounds which was at the time the most expensive sale in English soccer history. The club’s coach at that time, Italian Claudion Raniers, who took Chelsea to the 2002 FA Cup final and Champions League qualification was initially retained but was later sacked for being unable to get titles for the team. Successful coach Jose Mourinho from Portugal then took over as Chelsea’s new guide.
