Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is ‘hands-on’ behind the scenes and will be holding regular talks with boss Graham Potter and his Stamford Bridge squad, according to journalist Paul Brown.
The Blues trailed Premier League toppers Arsenal by eight points at the start of the international break, and Boehly hasn’t shied away from making meaningful contributions.
Boehly headed a group that successfully acquired Chelsea for £4.25 billion in May, putting an end to Roman Abramovich’s protracted rule in west London.
What is the most recent information about Boehly?
Thomas Tuchel’s spending of more than £250 million during the summer transfer window was approved by him, but the German manager did not stay at Stamford Bridge for very long.
That’s because Boehly swiftly named Potter as Tuchel’s replacement while also firing Tuchel less than a week after the deadline.
After advocating for the start of an All-Star game pitting Premier League North and South teams against one another, the new co-owner of Chelsea made headlines.
Prior to the 2018 World Cup in Qatar, Boehly is reportedly also trying to fill the position of sporting director, and Potter has been actively involved in the search for the ideal candidate since taking the hot seat.
Brown is aware that Boehly keeps a hectic schedule behind the scenes and is eager to monitor the club’s overall management.
What was mentioned about Boehly by Paul Brown?
The journalist thinks that the American is often speaking with the squad and Potter, who has just started his new position.
“I am hearing that Todd Boehly is quite a hands-on personality and plans to remain that way in and around the club,” Brown said to GIVEMESPORT.
“I anticipate that for the first few weeks after the new manager takes over, he will be everywhere, smoothing things over, talking to the players, advising the manager, and making decisions on strategy. That is likely fairly natural, in my opinion.
Boehly participated actively in the transfer market.
After sliding down the pecking order at Chelsea, Callum Hudson-Odoi joined Bundesliga powerhouse Bayer Leverkusen on loan for the duration of the season, although Boehly played a key role in the discussions.
It has been revealed that Boehly refused to incorporate a provision for a permanent transfer because he thought the winger would thrive in west London.
While all was going on, the American approved a £75 million transfer for Wesley Fofana but only on his terms.
Boehly apparently wanted further peace of mind following a long-term injury while on the books of Leicester City, forcing Fofana to travel to the United States for his physical.
