Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has hit out at the new Chelsea ownership.

Drogba had a good relationship with former owner Roman Abramovich, but doesn’t like the manner the club is being run under Todd Boehly.

According to Drogba, the club seems to lack class under Todd Boehly.

“I knew this club with a certain class during the Roman Abramovich era, but today I find it lacking,” Drogba, who won four league titles and the Champions League at Chelsea, told Canal+.

“It’s very hard for me to see how they got rid of certain people, for example the physiotherapists, who were there for a very long time. They should go back to the principles and values they had.”

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack has also hit out at how the club is being run under Todd Boehly, following the surprise dismissal of Thomas Tuchel.

“I was surprised by the sacking,” Ballack told SportBILD. ‘For me it was incomprehensible when a coach is dismissed so quickly.

“Especially because Thomas Tuchel had such a great success like winning the Champions League.

“You can see that a new owner brings a new philosophy with a new understanding of ideas. Everyone has their own people they want to rely on, so they made the hard cut with the trainer.

“We have to see if it works in the long term. I believe that you have to approach such a successful and big club carefully. Chelsea doesn’t need any upheaval! Todd Boehly is doing it differently now with his elbow mentality.”
