says Spanish newspaper

Spanish sports daily Marca have dimissed a claim by Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri that he was misquoted by the newspaper in a recent interview.

The newspaper alleged that Ranieri said: “Roman Abramovich knows nothing about football.”

However, Ranieri’s agents issued a denial saying their client’s comments had been, ‘lost in translation’.

“We have the tape of the interview which was dome at the (Chelsea training ground) in Harlington, with the assistance of Chelsea, two days before the Champions League quarter-final between Arsenal and Chelsea,” Marca said on Wednesday.
