According to reports from yesterday night, John Terry, a legend at Chelsea, wants to invest in the team where he first made his reputation.
The Englishman is reportedly interested in joining an investment group that would buy up to 10% of the club, and Todd Boehly is not opposed to the notion.
Boehly has faced some criticism from fans ever since he took over the organisation because of his unorthodox management style.
The club’s recruitment strategy during his first window there undoubtedly created some questions, but the hiring of the right staff members seems to indicate that there may be more of a plan in place now.
The main reason for the American’s unpopularity is that Roman Abramovich, who relentlessly funded the club to the heights they have reached over the last 20 years, is not him.
The Boehly reports should delight Chelsea supporters.
Many fans may respond that they have never felt more distant from the team they have supported for however many years when asked what their primary complaint is with the way things are being conducted.
This summer’s sales of several academy products undoubtedly helped to that. Many people at various times believed that Lewis Hall, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Mason Mount would be the club’s future leaders.
But if you want to win back part of the fan base, hiring one of the most well-liked characters in the club’s history is undoubtedly a major step in the right way.
The fans will now have the opportunity to participate in some of the most important choices made at the club thanks to Terry’s strong ties to the community.
One of these might be the future of their home pitch since, according to rumors, there are plans for them to buy land near to Stamford Bridge in anticipation of a capacity increase.
