Timo Werner on how Chelsea sanctions affected travel for away days

Chelsea forward Timo Werner spoke earlier this week about how difficult away days become for his side when they were forced to continue playing while under sanctions imposed by the UK government.

The sanctions were put in place back in March due to owner Roman Abramovich’s alleged ‘close ties’ with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

As a result, Abramovich was left with no option but to sell his club and during the takeover situation, Chelsea have been unable to negotiate players’ contracts and have been given a limited budget for match days.
