Krylia Sovetov coach Igor Osinkin is confident Chelsea fans will never forget former owner Roman Abramovich.
Abramovich was forced to sell Chelsea this year by the UK goverment as part of sanctions over Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The billionaire last week successfully assisted the release of six captured Britons from the Donetsk People's Republic.
Meanwhile, Osinkin told local TV: "He is a strong man. He can survive everything, but this is a football injustice. You can not do it this way. The attitude should be different.
"Once Chelsea won the Champions League for past merits, now this is impossible.
"He did so much for Chelsea, for English football, that for me this reaction is not right, no matter how it relates to politics. Fans will never forget him. In large, golden letters, he will be in the Museum of Glory for all eternity."
