🚨 Ricketts family on Chelsea backlash: We won't win over supporters right away, we will fight discrimination. Issuing a statement to ESPN on Thursday, Laura Ricketts, said: "We're not going to be able to persuade all the fans right away that we will be good stewards of Chelsea -- we're going to have to show them with meaningful action if we are successful in our bid. But I can assure all Chelsea fans that it has been my life's work to fight against discrimination and bigotry of any kind. "Coming out as an LGBTQ+ woman has influenced my perspective and sensitivity about diversity and inclusion. I can't know what it's like to walk in another person's shoes, but I can begin to understand and have an awareness of their different experience. "And that's a gift. In the position that I'm in, I feel a sense of responsibility to be an advocate. To me, being an advocate means speaking up, and also listening."
