Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck Steps Down

The American, who had been in the role since Roman Abramovich became owner in 2003, will continue to support the club as a “senior adviser”. It had been thought that 76-year-old Chelsea official will remain the chairman of the club after the takeover by his fellow American Todd Boehly in May but the man has decided to step down.

According to him, he said: “Now is the right time to step down and let new ownership build on the strong foundations we have in place.” he also said: “The owners have a compelling vision for Chelsea’s future, and I look forward to helping them achieve it in this new role alongside our incredible staff, players, coaches and supporters.” “I am proud to have helped Chelsea realise great success on the pitch and make a positive impact in the community,” he added.

After Russia invaded Ukraine, the club’s former owner Abrahimovich said he wanted to sell the club shortly before he was linked with the invasion by the UK government. The sanctions included the club being placed under a transfer embargo and the club operating under a special licence, which allowed the sale to go ahead.

During Buck’s chairmanship, the Chelsea men’s team won 18 major honours and the women’s team won 12. Co-owner Boehly said that buck had “led Chelsea Football Club to the highest levels of international and domestic football” and thanked him for “his service and his commitment to the club”.
