Boehly makes whirlwind entrance to English soccer at Chelsea


AP Sports Writer

Having little soccer experience hasn’t stopped American businessman Todd Boehly making some big calls in his first 100 days as the face of Chelsea’s new ownership. Firstly he made himself not just the club’s new chairman but also its interim sporting director in charge of recruitment. Then he oversaw a summer spending spree never seen before in English soccer featuring an outlay of nearly $300 million on new players.

Many are now asking if it will slow down.
