Former Chelsea defender William Gallas believes co-owner Todd Boehly is to blame if the club fails to finish in the top four of the Premier League..
Chelsea is eighth in the first season of the post-Roman Abramovich era, eight points out of the Champions League places.
Despite a record-breaking summer spending spree at Stamford Bridge, the Blues’ Boehly-Clearlake Capital ownership is ready to invest again in January.
Graham Potter was appointed as the club’s new manager after Thomas Tuchel was fired in September, and the former Brighton manager has overhauled the coaching staff.
Other key appointments have been made behind the scenes as part of a total restructure, with the owners implementing a “transfer think tank” to oversee player recruitment.
Despite a strong star under Potter, the season has been difficult so far, with Chelsea ending the first half of the season with three consecutive League defeats.
Gallas, on the other hand, believes Boehly must be blamed if they do not finish in the top four..
“If Chelsea do not finish in the top four, Todd Boehly will have failed,” the former defender told Genting Casino. There are no excuses for Chelsea finishing outside of the top four..
We are always quick to judge players based on their performance, and the owner should be no different. He arrived and spent a lot of money, but if he doesn’t make the top four, he failed.”
