Quiz: Name the players signed by Roman Abramovich at Chelsea


Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003

Roman Abramovich's time at Chelsea is nearing an end after the Russian billionaire was sanctioned by the UK government.

It comes as seven oligarchs were hit with fresh sanctions which saw all assets frozen as the fallout from Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine continues.

With the club already up for sale, Abramovich already appeared to be on the way out of west London following a remarkable 19-year spell in charge of the Premier League club, which saw him change the face of British football forever.

His huge fortune saw Chelsea spend lavishly on players and managers, effectively buying titles and European glory with as many as 113 players signed for a fee during his time in charge.

The question is, how many of those players can you remember?
