Roman Abramovich is in many ways, the model owner for a football club, a fan of Chelsea foremost and someone that works tirelessly to take the club to the top.

The Russian billionaire is so invested, in fact, that he inadvertently caused one of Peterborough's employees to be quite star-struck during the pre-season friendly on Saturday.

The owner of Peterborough United, Darragh Macanthony revealed after the game: "Chris Brewer [Peterborough's Media Manager] got all starry eyed when we were asked to share our match stream with a certain Football Club owner."

The fact that Roman took the time out to watch a behind closed doors friendly during pre-season, highlights his commitment to the club and shows what makes him so loved at Stamford Bridge.

He must have been pleased with what he saw too, seeing as Chelsea ran out 6-1 winners thanks to a Ziyech hat-trick among other goals.
