L.A. Dodgers partner Boehly joins Wyss in reported bid for Chelsea; Nick Candy statement

Chelsea could soon be part of a professional sports portfolio that includes the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the L.A. Sparks, while British billionaire and Chelsea fan Nick Candy has released a statement saying he is interested in buying the Blues with a consortium.

[ WATCH: Latest PST unfiltered ]

Things are getting very interesting as Chelsea look to move into a new era with a new owner.

Todd Boehly is said to have joined Swiss businessman Hansjorg Wyss in a bid to buy the Blues off wantaway Roman Abramovich, who wants out of the London club.

Boehly tried to buy Chelsea in 2019 but Abramovich was not interested in selling the European Cup champions. Now, under the microscope for his relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin amid the latter’s invasion of Ukraine, Abramovich is ready to sell the Premier League powers.

Who else is interested?

Chelsea fan Nick Candy appears to be the leading contender to Boehly and Wyss, as he could put together a similar consortium.

Candy released the following statement via his spokesperson, as he seems keen to redevelop Stamford Bridge as part of his bid.

“Mr Candy is actively exploring a number of options for a potential bid for Chelsea. Any bid would be made in conjunction with another party and we have serious interest from several international partners. Mr Candy has a huge affinity with Chelsea.

“He has been watching matches at Stamford Bridge since the age of four. The club deserves a world-class stadium and infrastructure and Mr Candy’s unique expertise and background in real estate would be a hugely valuable asset to delivering this vision.”

Potential owners line up

Turkish businessman Muhsin Bayrak said on Friday that he has tabled an offer to buy the Blues, while some Americans besides Boehly have been mentioned as potential bidders.

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson has been linked with a bid for Chelsea, while billionaire Josh Harris — already invested in Crystal Palace — owns the New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia 76ers.

Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts is also said to be interested, while outspoken fighter Conor McGregor has claimed interest in buying the London club.

Boehly and Wyss were mentioned quickly, and Boehly’s former bid for the club sure gives these rumors legs. Still, a club with the worth and import of Chelsea will not change hands without plenty of time and consideration.

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool lacked energy but happy to advance in Champions League

0 Comments

Jurgen Klopp is pleased to see Liverpool through to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals for the fourth time in five years, but the Reds’ boss wasn’t overjoyed by the tie.

Klopp was happy that Liverpool beat a tough Inter Milan over two legs but recognizes that his side was under pressure in both games and not at its best, especially in a 1-0 second-leg loss that could’ve been dicey had Alexis Sanchez not been shown a red card in the second half shortly after Inter pulled within one on aggregate.

“We could’ve done better against an opponent that makes life uncomfortable,” Klopp said after the second leg. “It was a really interesting game. In the end we lost the game which obviously is not cool, we didn’t come here to lose a home game.”

Klopp said Inter didn’t give Liverpool many chances to let Klopp’s famous counter-pressing work its magic but knows that Mohamed Salah’s twin posts were among a number of big and untaken Reds chances that could’ve made the second leg academic at Anfield.

“The opponent caused us problems but if we had used our chances we win this game,” Klopp said. “We lost a lot of simple balls, which can happen when the ball was in the air it was like slapstick with the wind. … The counter-press was not really there. We were around challenges but not in challenges and we didn’t get the momentum, that’s what we were lacking.”

Liverpool will take some comfort in advancing despite not being at their best. After all, the Reds’ B-game is enough to produce more chances than a lot of sides’ A-plus effort.
