EPL: You lack class – Drogba slams new Chelsea owner, Boehly


Didier Drogba has claimed his former club Chelsea is “lacking class” under new owner Todd Boehly.

Boehly led a consortium to buy the Premier League side from Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich earlier this year.

The 48-year-old has already spent more than £250m on new players over the summer and then sacked Thomas Tuchel as manager after just seven games of the new season.

Boehly has, however, come under fire for suggesting the Premier League should launch a North versus South All-Star game and also for reportedly sacking several members of Chelsea’s backroom team, including their head of medical and chief physio.

During his time at Stamford Bridge, Drogba enjoyed a good relationship under Abramovich and feels that is no longer the case.

“I knew this club with a certain class during the Roman Abramovich era, but today I find it lacking.

“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 told Canal+.
