Disappointed Drogba blasts Chelsea owner Todd Boehly

Didier Drogba, the legendary striker of Chelsea, has criticized the club’s owner Todd Boehly, accusing him of poor stewardship that has resulted in an unrecognizable Chelsea in the past year.

Drogba scored a whopping 164 goals for the club, and his iconic performance spearheaded their greatest achievement – winning the Champions League in 2012.

Despite his former teammate Frank Lampard returning as the club’s interim boss, Chelsea has struggled to find success.

Lampard lost each of his first four games in charge, and the team’s recent performance has been far from satisfactory.

In the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid, Chelsea suffered a two-goal defeat at home, ending in a four-goal aggregate victory for the Spanish and European champions, who barely had to break a sweat across both legs.

Drogba’s remarks highlight the frustration among Chelsea fans and legends who feel that the club is not living up to its potential. The pressure is mounting on Chelsea to turn things around quickly before it’s too late.

“I don’t recognise my club. It’s no longer the same club. There is a new owner and a new vision. Of course, we try to compare it with what happened during the Roman Abramovich era where a lot of players were brought in, but the decisions were very intelligent.

“Bringing in players like Petr Cech, Andriy Shevchenko, Herman Crespo, Micheal Essien, Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda, and I go on,” Drogba said.

According to Drogba, the team had previously focused on winning titles and had recruited experienced players for that purpose.

However, the strategy has now shifted, and they are now placing their bets on young players. The speaker noted that managing a dressing room with over 30 players can be difficult for a manager.
