Rothen reveals how he hid from Chelsea owner Abramovich

PSG winger Jerome Rothen has revealed how he ducked out of a confrontation with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

The Daily Mail says Rothen has revealed that he hid from Abramovich after the left winger's starring role in Monaco's Champions League semi-final victory against Chelsea in 2004.

Rothen claims Abramovich came looking for him after the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, but the player hid in the dope test room because he didn't want to explain to the powerful Russian why he wanted to move to Paris rather than London.
