Chelsea star, Mason Mount, has actually confessed that he is having a hard time to focus on his efficiencies after the Blues owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK federal government.
The UK federal government had on Thursday sanctioned Abramovich and some other Russian oligarchs as part of its action to Russia’s intrusion of Ukraine.
The sanctions are meant to stop Abramovich, who is stated to be near Russian President Vladimir Putin, from earning money from Chelsea.
Responding to the sanctions troubled Abramovich, Mount admitted that the circumstance has ‘not been easy’ for the players at Stamford Bridge.
“It’s not been easy, of course,” Mount stated at his post-match interview after Chelsea’s Premier League 3-1 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road on Thursday.
“We see what is occurring behind the scenes and everything that is going on, it can be hard to focus.
“But I believe we have been brilliant, particularly today. With everything that is occurring off the pitch, for us to stay concentrated and remain on the ball to win this video game, I believed we were dazzling.
“We just need to focus on what we can do on the pitch, that is our only goal.”
