Chelsea’s new head coach Graham Potter says he wants to create his own legacy at the club.

“When you take over a business, you have to align yourself with the people running the business,” says Boehly.

“Tuchel is obviously very talented and someone who has had great success with Chelsea. Our vision for the club was to find a manager who really wanted to work with us, a coach who really wanted to work with us.

“Chelsea have a lot of walls to break down. Previously, the top team and academy didn’t really share data, nor did they share information about where top players came from.

“Our goal is to put together a team, all of which need to be well-oiled machines. No one was right or wrong, it just wasn’t a shared vision of the future.

Boley also confirmed plans for Chelsea to operate a multi-club model, similar to Manchester City.

Boehly adds: We talked about the multi-club model. I want to continue to leave footprints. ”
