Boehly’s angry words after Everton draw

Still stuck in the Premier League mid-table, Chelsea conceded a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge to Everton this Saturday. Present for the meeting, Todd Boehly, owner of the Blues, made no secret of his frustration at the final whistle.

Chelsea missed the plank. Unlike Everton this Saturday in the Premier League’s 27th matchday, the Blues conceded a draw (2-2) despite leading twice. The maintenance candidate equalized at the end of the game (89th) thanks to Ellis Simms. What annoys Todd Boehly.

A colossal investment

Owner of Chelsea, the American was filmed a few minutes after his team’s draw: “F*** sea game **”, the man at the head of the London club since May 2022 scolded, filmed by a supporter.

Chelsea’s performance is enough to annoy Todd Boehly, whose financial investment has been huge since he came to power. During the winter transfer period, 370 million euros were put on the table to recruit. Last summer, 280 million euros had already been paid out on the transfer market.

In recent weeks, the businessman also approached Strasbourg to buy a part of the club. The possible relaxation of restrictions on timeshare would make operations easier.

Facing Everton, the team led by Graham Potter had finally found fault, after a sterile domination, with Joao Félix (52nd), author of a beautiful cross. When Frenchman Abdoulaye Doucouré equalized with a header (69th), Kai Havertz (76th) restored Chelsea’s lead from the penalty spot.

Decisively, Doucouré made a deflection in the final minutes in Ellis Simms’ race for the equalizer. As a result, The Blues are stuck in tenth place in the championship, with 38 points. They will receive Aston Villa this Saturday.
