It’s a crisis from the start.
“Chelsea is being investigated by the English Premier League (EPL) for allegedly breaking financial rules under former owner Roman Abramovich,” Sky Sports reported on Sept. 9. The American consortium that now owns Chelsea has reported the club to the European Football Association (UEFA) and the EPL’s secretariat after buying the club last summer,” Sky Sports reported.
“To date, Chelsea has not received any discipline from the EPL. If the club is found to be in breach of the rules, the punishment could be a fine or a point deduction. On March 28, UEFA fined the club €10 million for ‘insufficient financial information’ between 2012 and 2019. Chelsea did not respond to the charge.”
Chelsea have made some unconventional moves under new owner Todd Boeli. With an astronomical amount of money at their disposal, the Blues bolstered their squad with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Mark Cucurella, Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Denis Zakaria.
When Thomas Tuchel faltered, he was sacked and paid a penalty to bring in Graham Potter. The winter transfer window brought in Joao Felix, Benoit Badiassil, Noni Madueke, Mikhail Mudrique, and Enzo Fernandes in an attempt to turn things around.
But it failed miserably. Chelsea crashed without wings and Porter was sacked. Legendary manager Frank Lampard stepped in as interim boss, but things didn’t get any better. In the end, Chelsea finished the season winless and 12th in the league.
It was time to rebuild. Under Mauricio Pochettino, a shake-up is underway. Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, Kai Havertz, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Christian Pulisic have all left for new clubs. Denis Zakaria and João Felix returned to their original clubs on loan. Blood is flowing at Stamford Bridge.
Rebuilding is underway. Christopher Nkunku has joined the squad, as well as youngsters like Diego Moreira and Nicola Jackson. Angelou Gabriel and Leslie Ugochukwu have also brought in wonderkids. It culminated with the addition of Axel Dissah to bolster the defense.카지노
However, Pochettino’s Chelsea are in danger of getting off to a rocky start. Multiple outlets, including Sky Sports, have reported that Chelsea could face UEFA and EPL disciplinary action over financial issues under former owner Abramovich. The worst-case scenario is a fine and a point deduction.
