Chelsea owner Boehly calls for patience

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is confident the club’s fortunes will improve with time and has urged frustrated fans to “stay the course”.

Boehly and the rest of the club’s ownership group have invested over £1billion since taking over nearly two years ago but Chelsea continue to struggle on the field, languishing in 11th place in the Premier League.

They have also faced criticism off it with the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust addressing the matter in an open letter – stating the club had become a “laughing stock” while claiming “a shift in supporter opinion could result in irreversible toxicity”.

Boehly has been the subject of abusive chants at recent games but the American is optimistic things will change when the team clicks.

He told Forbes: “We just need to let the process develop and give them the time to go from being unbelievable individual players with great skills to fold into a team.”

He also shrugged off the personal abuse, adding: “The good news is people care so much. And the bad news is people care so much. 

“That leads to times when they’re frustrated with the team and the owners. I get that, but we just have to continue to stay the course.”

Chelsea host Manchester United on Thursday night on a decent run of form, despite the frustration of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with struggling Burnley.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have lost just one of their last nine games, and that was the extra-time defeat to Liverpool in the EFL Cup final.
