Todd Boehly insists Chelsea have learned a lot after a disastrous season and will soon find a way to solve the problems.
There was a lot of excitement at Chelsea when chairman Todd Boehly bought the club for £4.25 billion. The American boss quickly invested heavily in the first season when spending more than £ 600 million in transfer money. But this effort did not pay off with success on the pitch. Chelsea went through a blank season and did not participate in the Champions League next season.
However, Todd Boehly urged fans to continue to trust the management team when they will solve the problems from next season.
“Football is a global sport. Unlike in the US, the market for top players exists in every country in the world. And every market is different. We had to explore markets in Portugal, France as well as the UK. You have to build a team and the coach is the conductor of that team. So I think we learned a lot.
The fans are very demanding. You know they want to win. We also want to win. We understand that this is a long term project and we are committed to it for the long term. We believe we can do it. We are in the best league in the world. We are a team in the best city in the world and have a great location in this city.”
Chelsea are in 12th place in the Premier League table. The opportunity to improve the ranking of this team is not much when they still have to face many difficult opponents for the rest of the season.
