Why Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali no longer have a good relationship
The relationship between Chelsea co-owners, Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali has become a fractious one, according to a report by The Athletic reporters, Simon Johnson and Liam Twomey.
The reporters claim that they have been informed of the development by a number of sources within Stamford Bridge.
The report reads: “More than one source, speaking anonymously to The Athletic in order to protect relationships, claim that the duo are not on as good terms now as they once were.
“That has been strongly denied by Chelsea, who stress things are working well between all senior staff, including the co-sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart.
“Boehly and Eghbali, who has a greater input in how Chelsea are run than many people seem to realise, had dinner together in Los Angeles before the end of last year and communicate on a daily basis on the phone or via text.
“As in most businesses, there have been disagreements at the top and, on occasion, those have been voiced in front of others.”
The report however, adds that their personal differences aside, they Boehly and Eghbali remain united over matters that concern Chelsea as a business entity.
