Todd Boehly led Clearlake Capital in purchasing Chelsea from Roman Abramovich in May of last year after the UK Government had frozen the club’s assets. However, the first ten months were fraught with difficulties for the new proprietors.
Boehly and co. may have set themselves up for similar difficulties when they fired Thomas Tuchel only to appoint Graham Potter — an English manager seen by many as a yes-man unsuited to manage the egos at Chelsea.
To make matters worse, the new owners went on a spending binge, signing 17 players and spending €600 million. As a result, the Blues were faced with an unwieldy roster of more than 30 players, with the manager frequently unsure of how to keep the dressing room pleased.
Boehly eventually fired Potter, replacing him with Frank Lampard in the interim while a new manager is sought. But Lampard’s appointment is puzzling given that he has lost his first four games in a row. After four games, he is the worst Chelsea manager in history.
