New Chelsea owners told to sack Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia. Chelsea’s highest bidder, Todd Boehly, has been advised by Julian Knight, chair of the Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee, against keeping both Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia at Stamford Bridge.
According to Knight, all people associated with the club’s exiting owner, Roman Abramovich, should no longer be a part of it after the takeover, according to Abramovich.
After his group was chosen as the favored bidder to take over the club, Boehly is claimed to have been hoping to maintain both Buck and Granovskaia at the club.
New Chelsea owners told to sack Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia. Before the UK government sanctioned Abramovich for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, he put the club up for sale.
Both Granovskaia and Buck have been key figures during Abramovich’s reign at Stamford Bridge.
“Any continuity with the Abramovich regime at Chelsea is certainly an unsettling development,” Knight told the Financial Times.
“There needs to be clarity surrounding the process to ensure that everything is being done to the letter.”
