Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will not contemplate losing tomorrow’s Champions League final, according to Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery.
The Frenchman is looking forward to appearing in his first Champions League final after missing out due to suspension against Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan two years ago, but he knows Abramovich has been waiting even longer to get his hands on the prized piece of silverware.
“Abramovich has wanted to win the Champions League for so long,” he said. “If they lose it Saturday then it will be brutally tough. It would ruin them in the head and really lower morale.”
Ribery added: “We are definitely not thinking about losing. If you lose, then you are distraught.
“I have achieved a lot with Bayern. I have won the league and the cup several times and now to win the Champions League would be historic.”
