N’Golo Kante is the first Chelsea player to break the silence after Roman Abramovich put the club up for sale

CHELSEA star N’Golo Kante admitted he and his team-mates were “unprepared” for the testimony of outgoing owner Roman Abramovich.

Abramovich put the blues up for sale after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and questions about his ties to President Vladimir Putin, which he denies.

The Russian has priced it at £3bn and has tasked US bankers Raine Group with finding a buyer, with a reported deadline of March 15.

Edge became the first Chelsea Players to comment following Abramovich’s announcement.

The star midfielder insists the focus remains on the pitch as it is the only area the team can control.

Edge tells Sky Sports: “We were not prepared for that, it came quickly.

“But the only thing we can do because we don’t control these things is do the best we’ve always done.

“It means you play the best football [possible level]for us, for the club, for the fans and see how things are going and it’s the only thing we can control.

“It’s sad to see things like this [the invasion of Ukraine]. We can hope that it will be ready as soon as possible and in the best way.”

Abramovich looks determined to receive his first official offer this week by an American-Swiss billionaire syndicate of Todd Boehly and Hansjorg Wyss.

Boehly, who owns a stake in the LA Dodgers, and Wyss are expected to make an offer of around £2billion.

At least two other groups are weighing an offer and Jim Ratcliffe, one of the UK’s richest men worth around £6billion, could make a proposal through his Ineos empire.
