Prior to Chelsea's match against Wolves on Saturday, Boehly was seen speaking to the former Brighton manager and greeting numerous players.

Since leading the consortium that successfully completed a Β£4.25 billion takeover of the Premier League club at the end of May, the billionaire American businessman and investor has been a prominent figure at the club.

Boehly, who has been serving as the London club’s interim sporting director, oversaw Β£270 million in spending on new players during the summer transfer window and fired manager Thomas Tuchel in the midst of a rocky start to the season.

This came after a number of long-tenured backroom staff members resigned, including former chairman Bruce Buck, director and transfers chief Marina Granovskaia, technical and performance director Petr Cech, and international head of scouting Scott McLachlan.

Since taking over the club, the American has been open with his opinions, drawing criticism for his proposals for an All-Star North vs. South game and his assertions that Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah were product of the Chelsea academy.

Following speculations that Christopher Vivell will join Chelsea as their new technical director, only hours after it was disclosed that he had been fired from the same position with RB Leipzig, Boehly paid a visit to the training facility.

On Friday morning, Leipzig announced on Twitter that Vivell had been “fired from his position as technical director on Thursday due to a difference in contrasting views.”

The Telegraph’s Matt Law has revealed that he will take on the same role at Stamford Bridge.

Petr Cech stepped down from his position as Blues goalkeeper after three years when it was announced that the club would be sold.

After failing to land Michael Edwards and Christoph Freund, the Todd Boehly-Clearlake Capital ownership will be relieved to finally find the right man to replace him.

Graham Potter ahead of Wolves:

 "A lot of talented players, so we expect a tough game so we have to be ready and positive." 

πŸ‘‰ on N'Golo Kante: "Doing more and more integration with team. Not ready for the weekend, but getting closer and closer." 

πŸ‘‰ on Wesley Fofana: "Wesley's knee, not as bad as we thought. A few weeks, I think. A possibility to play before World Cup, depending on rehab." 

πŸ‘‰ on Marc Cucurella: "Fully recovered now. He's had more recovery so will be involved tomorrow." 

πŸ‘‰ on Trevoh Chalobah: "Really pleased. Epitomises the group, ready to come in and help. Training level has been high, so a reward of that behaviour." 

πŸ‘‰ on Diego Costa: "We have a lot of respect for what he has achieved. He will come ready to play. Everybody knows at the club how good he's been."
