Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has questioned Chelsea’s recruitment under Todd Boehly.

The new Chelsea owners have decided to go for young players rather than experienced players, which has so far not worked out.

Leboeuf believes Chelsea missed out on a number of good signings to other Premier League sides, as the current Chelsea owners are only focused on the money.

He told BetVictor: “I don’t understand what the owners at the club are doing.

“Why did Chelsea let James Maddison go to Tottenham last summer? Why did they let James Ward-Prowse go to West Ham?

“Why are they not at Chelsea? These players didn’t cost a lot but they’ve brought a lot to their teams.

“Chelsea had these options in the transfer market but now we all know that these kinds of players weren’t in their thoughts, they just want to sign young, talented players on long contracts because they want to make money.

“They don’t want results – and we saw the consequences of this in the defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.”

    Indeed it’s is anunderstandable especially to Chelsea soccer fans and lovers. they must have to change there statistics in recruitment. look back how Abramovic was doing with his business by then. They even know that history this club made and it’s very far better than the past. We still have love for the New owners of the club But, they might intervene into the combination of signing players because yes, there view might be good but it may take up to 5 seasons. This is EPL not any better league. And yet with these baby faces they ought to beat Liverpool? they ought to beat Man city? You ought to beat Man United? it’s a hard nut to crack. Experience players are needed more especially at our club if they really want to bring back those joys at Stanford Bridge. And the sacking of coaches is also the matter here because the needs time. buy him quality players to deliver an amusing results and win titles for the club. Other wise, Much love for the Blues ????????????????.
