Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has filed a lawsuit alleging defamation in a book titled ‘Putin’s People,’ which was published last year.

Caterine Belton wrote the novel, which makes many statements about Abramovich and others close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to the book, the Russian billionaire purchased Chelsea in 2003 on Putin’s special orders, with the aim of using the club as a conduit to expand Russian dominance in the UK.

Abramovich has now issued a statement via the club’s official website, claiming that the book published by HarperCollins includes “a series of misleading and defamatory statements made” that have harmed his and the club’s credibility.

He also maintained that he purchased the club purely for sporting purposes, and that the vast change in results after he bought it from Ken Bates in 2003 can be noticed by everyone.

Chelsea’s only previous league championship came in 1955, before Abramovich’s arrival.
