Former Chelsea man, Ruud Gullit has accused Todd Boehly and his co-owners of the club of being the cause of the problems it has faced in recent times.

Boehly and his team bought Chelsea from Roman Abramovich for a fee of around £4b last year after the Russian lost his assets to the British government.

Despite investing more than £1bn in transfers since their takeover, the Blues are yet to start reaping the benefits, and Gullit now thinks that Boehly only cares about money, and he feels no real love for the West London club.

He said, as quoted by the Metro: “I think that a lot of troubles have come because the current owners have no affection for the club and they bought it solely due to a business decision. We can’t forget, though, that European football is all about emotion.

“The fans are emotionally invested, and I think that can collide with the reality of where the club is. Nowadays, it’s almost as if football is more of a business venture and there isn’t as much heart. It can collide with the fans, as I said.”
