Chelsea stars sprinkle the magic on Etihad at World Travel Market

Staying loyal to the path trod by Emirates in associating itself with sporting greatness, neighbour Etihad Airways was seen doing the same at London’s World Travel Market today.

The airline’s UK country manager Clive Wratten is seen posing with Premiership stars Ashley Cole (far left), Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda of Chelsea.

Now I suspect Clive is not a Chelsea supporter – maybe he can tell us? That’s the trick with sponsoring a team – you don’t really care except in a business way if they win or lose.

At least Chelsea can be confident of the financial health of their sponsor. Unlike poor West Ham with XL Airways, which went bust forcing the “Hammers” backroom staff to get the needle and cotton out and hastily patch over the Excel logos.

Tell us of any other “stars” you saw at WTM.

    Its been a tough week at WTM but I am happy to say I survived. Chelsea are a great team by the way and my favourite second team.

    Good to hear from you Clive and that you managed to survive WTM and no doubt do a lot of good business in between hosting all those lovely guests.

    So who is your favourite team?

    I have to tell you I am a Burnley supporter! For those of you that follow English football you will know Burnley beat Chelsea last night in a Carling Cup thriller.
