Todd Boehly, the chairman of Chelsea C.F., reportedly stepped down from his position as the team’s interim sporting director.
Chelsea Online News:
When he came at Stamford Bridge, the Blues’ co-owner, who acquired the team alongside Clearlake Capital in May, took the position.
According to a source, Boehly was forced to “relinquish” his position as Chelsea’s interim sporting director because the club had recruited a number of new hires in their recruitment department.
The American will continue to serve as the club’s chairman, according to the report, but Chelsea’s transfer activity will now be organized by their recent additions.
