What They're Saying

"Chelsea supported the financial fair play (initiative) but in the morning they announce a 70 million pounds ($113 million) loss and in the afternoon they buy 71 million pounds ($155 million) worth of players. Where's the logic in that? I don't know if [Chelsea owner Roman] Abramovich is worried (about Chelsea’s playing form) but that's how you read it from the outside. If you don't invest for a while it looks as if he is not involved but 71 million pounds means more will come."
