Top executive at Chelsea Football Club Marina Granovskaia is set to depart Stamford Bridge, after Bruce Buck earlier stepped down from his role as Chairman.
The Blues confirmed on Monday that Buck would step down as Chairman from June 30th, with the American believing it was the right time for a new person to take over following the club’s £4.25 billion pounds sale to the consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital.
Buck will remain as a Senior Advisor but there was uncertainty as regards Marina Granovskaia’s position and according to the Telegraph, the Blues director is set to leave as Boehly and Co shake up the boardroom, with the American billionaire expected to take over from Buck as Chairman.
Granovskaia’s departure is expected to be confirmed before the transfer window comes to a close.
The latest development will come as a disappointment to manager Thomas Tuchel, who had hoped that Granovskaia and former player Petr Cech would remain in their roles, having struck up a relationship with the pair during the Roman Abramovich era.
