Ex-Roman Abramovich favourite sends Zakharyan instruction
Remember Aleksandr Golovin? The Russian attacking midfielder who made his name during the 2018 World Cup was a key target for Abramovich in his latter years, but AS Monaco eventually beat the west Londoners to his signature.
Now, Golovin has had his say on the Zakharyan to Chelsea rumours, and he’s instructed his fellow counterpart what to do in this situation if/when his Premier League move eventually goes through, with the target being for the 2023 January transfer window. “I feel sorry that he was not able to leave now. But, if there will be such an opportunity in the future, I think he should try, even if they send him on loan to another club,” he told Russian outlet Sport Express.
“Chelsea have a very serious selection of players in the attacking line, and it won’t be easy to play right away. And at his age, you need to play. In any case, he should try. ”
Todd Boehly slammed for Thomas Tuchel decision
Graeme Souness has labelled Chelsea owner Todd Boehly as ‘mad’ for his spending habits and has sent Graham Potter a serious warning over major Chelsea dressing room problems.
Managers and pundits alike have reacted negatively to Boehly’s decision in this situation. This includes Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville, who Souness joins in being hyper-critical of Boehly and the story that has led to this moment so far, four months into his regime.
As I said in these pages on Saturday, Boehly decided that he did not need three people at the club who had been so successful at running it — Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech,” he wrote in his latest Daily Mail column. ‘Whether he got rid of them or they left of their own volition, at that point, he has to surround himself with football people..TAP.TO.CONTINUE.READING
‘It will clearly take some time for Boehly to discover that it’s not as simple as he thought, that recruitment is not just about spending large amounts of money and that recruitment is also the most important part of running a football club.’
