The American took over Chelsea from Roman Abramovich early this year and has so far spent a record sum in the transfer market and also sacked Thomas Tuchel.

On letting Tuchel go, Boehly had this to say in an interview on Tuesday:

“I think Tuchel is obviously extremely talented. He is someone who has had great success at Chelsea. Our vision for the club was finding a manager who really wanted to collaborate with us. There’s a lot of walls to break down at Chelsea,” he said.

“No one is right or wrong, we just didn’t have a shared vision for the future. It wasn’t about Zagreb. It was about a shared vision of what we wanted for Chelsea Football Club to look like.”

Elsewhere, Boehly proposed that the Premier League have a match between the best Northern eleven and the best Southern eleven each year, similar to what the MLB does in America:

“MLB did their all star game this year. They made $200m from a Monday and a Tuesday, you could do a North vs South all-star game from the Premier League to fund the pyramid very easily,”

Boehly was also asked about the European Super League, which nearly came to pass in 2021 but was prevented due to the massive fan backlash:

“I never say hard nos, I like to keep options alive but it is not something that we are talking about at all.”
