Former Chelsea player Didier Drogba has taken a swipe at the club’s co-owner Todd Boehly over some of the decisions he has taken since acquiring the club from Roman Abramovich.
Drogba spoke to reporters that Boehly focused too much on young players while building a bloated squad. He also believes Chelsea has fundamentally changed for the worse under Boehly.
“I don’t recognize 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, Michael Essien, Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda, and I go on. It was done to win titles. They are players with a certain experience. The strategy is now different; we bet on young players. But a dressing room of over 30 players is difficult [to manage] for a manager.
“You need players that take on the game, that assume their responsibilities. You need a player that brings a bit of madness to the stadium,” he said.
