News, Chelsea verdict: Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly debuts prove Todd Boehly right to back Thomas Tuchel on transfers: detailed suggestions and opinions about Chelsea verdict: Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly debuts prove Todd Boehly right to back Thomas Tuchel on transfers.
WHEN Roman Abramovich packed his bags, many wondered how Chelsea were going cope in the transfer market.
New American owner Todd Boehly has no experience of European football.
And some argued his position was weakened when Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech also departed Stamford Bridge.
But Boehly wanted his first transfer window to rest entirely in the hands of Thomas Tuchel.
It’s a rare thing for a Chelsea boss to get a say when it comes to signings.
However, Tuchel is a Champions League winner who deserves the chance to build a squad in his image.
And in Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, the German has hit the nail on the head as both had fine debuts in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Everton.
