RC Strasbourg fans wrote him down a letter and showed their anger.
Todd Boehly is facing too much backlash since taking ownership of Chelsea. He also added Strasbourg to his football club portfolio over the summer.
Todd Boehly and his BlueCo group have been slammed by the RC Strasbourg fans, who ‘don’t want the incompetence that reigns at Chelsea’ at their football club
Patrick Vieira’s side have picked up just four points from their last five games, and the club are now standing at 11th in the Ligue 1 after consecutive defeats.
Fans penned down an open letter to club president Marc Keller, taking issue with the club’s ownership. The letter from Fédération Supporters RCS begins, “Following BlueCo’s purchase, the 2023 summer transfer window is our first element of analysis and our first major worry.”
“The exclusive recruitment of very young players – not yet operational and potentially weakened by their over-exposition, combined with the absence of arrivals of more mature players, exposes the club to a sporting risk from which the owners should have better protected us.
“BlueCo’s imposition of an obligation to buy only very young hopefuls is senseless on a sporting level and the fans don’t relate to their team at the moment.
“The supporters that maintained that, since the purchase of Racing, we are only a training centre and a secondary piece in a global business, have gained credit following this transfer window, which seems far from the announced ambition.”
Strasbourg signed four 20-year-olds and a 21-year-old for a combined €56m over the summer.
It also adds, “Money without competence doesn’t lead to anything good, and the example of Chelsea, our so-called ‘big brother’, who have spent a lot of money but have had a vertical fall down the English hierarchy, is an important reference point.
