Once the consortium completes the purchase of Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel hopes Todd Boehly can become the club’s “lucky charm.”.
Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner is leading an ownership bid worth £4.25 billion. And that is expected to pass the Premier League’s owners and directors’ test in the coming days.
The American businessman is thought not to have seen the men’s team win since entering into talks to buy the club.
After losing the FA Cup Final to Liverpool, he attended Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.
“That is simply a sign,” Thomas Tuchel joked. “He will watch on ESPN in Los Angeles next season, it is clear! If it is like this, it is clear.”
“We will be very open and very honest. He will get my point of view if he wants to have it. Of course, we lose key players and we struggle to win our home games,” Tuchel said.
“He was at the final in Wembley. Maybe when the deal is done and he is our owner, he is the lucky charm that we need so we give him so more credit.”
