Todd Boehly’s led new Chelsea leadership have continued their ruthless shake-up at Chelsea.

The new owners have reportedly sacked long-serving head physiotherapist Thierry Laurent.

Laurent has been working with the Chelsea senior players since 2005 and was promoted to his head physio role in 2014.

Laurent who has been at the club for 17 years, has worked closely with different managers at the club and has been part of the team’s success.

The Daily Mail report that Laurent was told of his sack during the international break via a ‘short zoom call’ on Tuesday.

The news came out of the blue, as medical director Dr Paco Biosca also left Stamford Bridge after 11 years.

According to The Athletic, Laurent was ‘shocked’ by the decision and was informed during the zoom call that the new owners want to bring their own person in.

The new Chelsea’s owners intend to reshape the medical department at the club.
