It's no secret that Chelsea have spent big in the current campaign. In fact, the club have invested a whopping £600 million in new players and managers since Todd Boehly’s takeover from Roman Abramovich. However, despite all the investment, the team still struggles to reach its full potential.
Chelsea's significant investment has not translated into success on the field due to several reasons. The club needs to address these issues to turn its fortunes around and become a top contender in the Premier League once again.
1. Poor recruitment
Chelsea have spent a lot of money on new players in this season. But unfortunately, not all of them have lived up to expectations. The club has been accused of poor recruitment, as they have often bought players who do not fit the team's style of play or culture. This has resulted in several high-profile flops, including Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
2. Managerial instability
Another reason why Chelsea has struggled despite its significant investment is managerial instability. Since Todd Boehly took over the club, he has sacked several managers, including Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, and appointing a rookie interim manager like Frank Lampard.
This has led to a lack of consistency and stability, which is essential for building a winning team. Furthermore, the constant turnover of managers has also led to a lack of clear direction for the London club.
3. Poor team cohesion
Finally, poor team cohesion is another issue that has plagued Chelsea's campaigns. Despite investing heavily in new players, the team often looks disjointed and lacks the necessary chemistry to win games. This can be attributed to a lack of team-building activities, language barriers, and different playing styles among the new signings.
