The official takeover of Chelsea Football Club was confirmed yesterday once and for all.
It was announced on Chelsea’s website that Roman Abramovich had officially completed the sale of the club to Todd Boehly’s consortium, and the new era began right away.
The Daily Mail had some great words come out after the confirmation explaining why those who hoped Chelsea would crumble in these circumstances will end up being left disappointed. And there was MANY of these people around, true colours really shone during this time.
Abramovich set Chelsea up for success, even after he has gone. The report says that Abramovich’s greatest gift was creating a club that did not need HIM to make it appealing to a billionaire buyer, and that’s exactly what has happened with Boehly taking over.
Abramovich made Chelsea to already be a blueprint for a great business to any buyer willing to invest. So the bottom line is, Chelsea are not going anywhere, and we have both Abramovich and Boehly to thank for that.
