Snoop Dogg is ‘August’ visitor at Chelsea’s pre-season tour

Several Chelsea stars have posted photos posing with rap legend Snoop Dogg during the Blues’ pre-season tour of the USA.

The 50-year-old was an unexpected guest at Chelsea’s training camp and his arrival was seen as a welcome break to manager Thomas Tuchel’s intense training session.

Stars such as Kai Havertz, Jorginho and Billy Gilmour were snapped with the veteran just hours after England forward Raheem Sterling was revealed as new owner Todd Boehly’s first major piece of business since he took charge of the Blues in May.

Several members of the squad also joined Boehly at the Dodger Stadium on a day where new star signing Raheem Sterling was announced as Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.

Thiago Silva, Edouard Mendy and Jorginho were all pictured at the home of the LA Dodgers as Chelsea continue to prepare for their pre-season tour of the USA.

Marcus Bettinelli and Malang Sarr also posed for pictures as Sterling donned the Chelsea dark blue for the first time.

Boehly, who took over Chelsea at the end of May after previous owner Roman Abramovic put the club up for sale following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, part owns baseball team LA Dodgers and is regularly in his home country.

Chelsea are set to play three pre-season matches in America before flying to Italy to continue their tour.

Whilst the Blues stars could be seen to be enjoying the views at the stadium, the main attraction was England forward Raheem Sterling, who was unveiled as a Chelsea player on Thursday.

The £50million deal promises to get the ball rolling in the transfer market at Stamford Bridge with a move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly almost completed too.

Chelsea will kick off their games in the US on Sunday when they face Club America at the Allegiant Stadium.

They’ll then take on Charlotte FC on Thursday, before rounding up their tour against London rivals Arsenal on Saturday.

They’ll then head back to Europe to visit Udinese before they face Everton at Goodison Park on August 6 in their Premier League opener.
