Todd Boehly, a co-owner of Chelsea, has resigned from his position as the football team’s temporary sporting director.
After Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaia left Stamford Bridge last summer, he named himself acting sporting director and has since oversaw negotiations for transfers at the west London club.
However, according to The Telegraph, he is no longer in the position as a result of recruiting a new recruitment team, some of whom began working this month. Boehly will remain the only chairman of the Blues.
Boehly has now delegated control to Paul Winstanley, head of global talent and transfers, and Christopher Vivell, new technical director.
Chelsea has already signed three players in January, including the young combo of David Datro Fofana and Andrey Santos and Benoit Badiashile, who cost £35 million.
