Chelsea Chairman to step down after 19 years with Todd Boehly set to succeed him


Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck is to step down from his role on June 30, with co-owner Todd Boehly set to succeed him.

American Buck who had been chairman since Roman Abramovich became owner in 2003, was set to continue in the role after the takeover of the club by a Boehly-led consortium last month.

A change of direction means he will now support the club as a “senior adviser”.
