Chelsea owner Abramovich still angry missing out on Man City's Robinho

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is still angry over Manchester City's stunning capture of former Real Madrid winger Robinho.

The Independent says Abramovich is believed to remain angry that his club lost out on Robinho, although what is also clear is that the Russian is no longer willing to pay what he believes are inflated fees for players. Abramovich is still smarting from some of the deals that he agreed in the past - such as signing Juan Sebastian Veron and Adrian Mutu - although he accepts that they had to be done at the time.

He is demanding more value for money, even though he is delighted with the work of his new manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari.
