Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is leaving the club in a new reorganization of the management team, led by a group of owners led by Todd Boehly, who will take over as interim sporting director and board chairman.
Granovskaia, who has played a central role in all Chelsea transfer cases, has been a decision-maker at Stamford Bridge for the past 12 years and has a close relationship with Roman Abramovich, a former team owner who worked for him at the oil company until. 1997. Owned by a Russian professional.
He was named “Europe’s Best Club Director” at the Golden Boy Awards last year, but was also involved in cleaning up a boardroom, with the departure of President Bruce Buck.
Boehly, who bought Chelsea for $ 4.25 billion at the end of May, was given the task of overseeing temporary incoming and outgoing transfers.
Chelsea confirmed the news on its official website on Wednesday, adding that Granovskaia will be available for Boehly to help with the transition in the current transfer window.
“We thank Marina for her many years of outstanding service to the club and wish her all the best for her future endeavors,” Boehly added in a statement.
