For many years, Chelsea was owned by Roman Abramovich. However, owing to Russia’s involvement in the war in Ukraine, Abramovich was forced to sell Chelsea earlier this year.

The man who has taken over is American, Todd Boehly.

Boehly has already come in for criticism for some of his comments, including believing Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah came from Chelsea’s academy.

And now, Didier Drogba has had his say on the new regime at Chelsea:

“I knew this club with a certain class during the Abramovich era, but today I find it lacking,” Drogba told Canal Plus. “It’s very hard for me to see how they got rid of certain people, for example the physiotherapists, who were there for a very long time. “They should go back to the principles and values they had.”

Drogba’s former team-mate at Chelsea Michael Ballack also recently described Todd Boehly’s decision to sack Tuchel last month as ‘incomprehensible’.

Ballack told German outlet Bild: “I was surprised by the sacking. For me it was incomprehensible when a coach is dismissed so quickly.

“Especially because Tuchel had such a great success like winning the Champions League.

“We have to see if it works in the long term. I believe that you have to approach such a successful and big club carefully.

“Chelsea doesn’t need any upheaval. Boehly is doing it differently now with his elbow mentality.”
