Chelsea Handed A Major Blow Ahead Of Their UCL Clash With Lille After Latest Reports Emerge

Chelsea have been handed a major blow ahead of their champions League clash with Lille tonight. The Blues have been ordered to remove the 'Three' logo from their jerseys hours to the big game. This comes days after the British telecoms company axed their sponsorship with Chelsea.

Three who were Chelsea's shirt sponsors withdrew their sponsorship late last week after Chelsea club owner Roman Abramovic was slapped with sanction by the UK government. Abramovic who is Russian billionaire also had his properties frozen with Chelsea handed several penalties. However, Three, who were part of Chelsea's main sponsors didn't hesitate to cancel their deal with the Blues.

Following the stern order to Chelsea, it is remains a mystery of how the jersey that had been prepared for the Blues ahead of the Champions League would look. Chelsea travelled to France to play against Lille in the second leg of the round of 16 ties. Even so, Chelsea go in to the game with two goals advantage over their opponents.
