Chelsea have found new owners - a Todd Boehly-led consortium - as current owner Roman Abramovich ends his 19-year long tenure with the club. After the news broke on Friday, May 6, Blues fans welcomed the new owners and thanked Abramovich for his contribution.

The Russian took over the club in 2003 and has won 21 major trophies, including the FIFA Club World Cup in February. He has invested heavily in the club, bringing in world-class players and managers to help bring success to Chelsea.

However, after Russia's invasion of Ukraine in March, the UK government put sanctions on the billionaire. Hence, the sale of the club was inevitable.

The Stamford Bridge faithful were glum to see Abramovich leave, taking to Twitter to express their gratitude for all he did for the club. Here are some of their reactions:

@iam_Yhemie Thank You Roman Abramovich C.R.O.W.N.F.I.T 👑 @qadsawee Thank you, #RomanAbramovich . You gave us two decades of happiness and pride.

You won't be forgotten ever. Welcome #ToddBoehly . May we have matching success or even better with you at the helm.

Saud Al-Rasheed @vikra_vikrant Roman did so much for Chelsea. One of the best sporting owners 🏽

Abramovich also waved off a £1.6 billion loan the club owed him to make the sale more feasible. It's truly the end of one of the most successful owner-club partnership.
