Former Chelsea owner, Ken Bates has revealed why he doesn't feel sympathy for Roman Abramovich after the British Government sanctioned the 55-year-old.

The UK government froze Abramovich's assets last week amid his alleged ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As a result of the sanctions, Chelsea are unable to sell tickets to supporters, sign players, or renew contracts.

And Bates, who sold Chelsea to Abramovich for £140 million in 2003, said he doesn't feel sympathy for the Russian billionaire because he is worth £7-8billion.

Speaking about Abramovich's sanctions, Bates told MailOnline: "I don't feel sympathy for him. Why should I? He's worth £7-8billion.

"But he can only eat steak and chips twice a day, same as me. When he goes to his grave, his shroud won't have any pockets in it."
