EPL: Marina Granovskaia set to quit Chelsea after club chairman resigns

Chelsea director, Marina Granovskaia is set to become the next big name to leave the club.

On Monday, it was confirmed Bruce Buck will step down as chairman.

According to The Telegraph, Granovskaia will follow Buck out of Stamford Bridge and it is even believed her departure could be confirmed before the transfer window closes.

In that case, it has been suggested Todd Boehly, who took control in West London after completing his takeover, may oversee transfer negotiations.

Granovskaia, in her role under former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, was lauded as “football’s best club director”.

The Russian-Canadian business executive has effectively run the club on a day-to-day basis. According to their website, she has “acted as a representative of the owner at the club and in support of the board of directors” since her arrival in 2010.

Having then joined the club’s board in 2013, she assumed responsibilities over player contracts and transfer business.

Chelsea are yet to officially issue confirmation over her future.
