Ex-Chelsea boss Ranieri rejects Abramovich treatment: Anyone who fights for peace must be supported

Former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri has hit out at the way the UK government has treated Roman Abramovich.

Abramovich has seen his British assets seized by the government - including Chelsea - due to claims of his ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin following the invasion of Ukraine.

Ranieri was asked about the situation and highlighted that Abramovich answered a call from Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky to help broker peace talks last month.

He told Il Corriere dello Sport: "It seems to me that the president of Ukraine described him as a man above all suspicion, he is working towards a solution.

"Anyone who fights for peace must be supported. We hope it will be an Easter of peace, but it is difficult."
