Chelsea defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, in what was a very good display from the Blues.
Following the victory over United, more emphasis has been placed on Antonio Conte’s decision to bench David Luiz after rumours of a rift between them and also Michael Emenalo’s decision to quit his role as technical director.
The Daily Mail claim that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich now wants to have more of an oversight of the day-to-day running of the west London outfit.
Abramovich is said to be aware of the issue concerning Luiz and Conte, but while he isn’t questioning the Italian’s handling of the matter, he wants to be more involved in what goes down at the Chelsea complex.
The Russian billionaire has been in control of Chelsea since 2003 and has seen problems before with rifts in his squad which has led to many managerial sackings. He has played only a background role at the club, but these reports claim he now wants to be more involved in what goes down at the club.
