Tom Glick to be replaced by Chris Jurasek as CEO at Chelsea

Chelsea are set to appoint Chris Jurasek as their new chief executive, according to a report from The Times

The club’s president of business Tom Glick is expected to leave in more upheaval at Stamford Bridge.  

Glick came into the job last July after his successful stints at Derby County and Manchester City. 

He was brought in to grow the club’s business commercially and help develop a multi-club model by using his experience at City. 

But he is now set to part ways with the club after only ten months, with Jurasek poised to take charge of the commercial arm. 

Chelsea were reportedly asked if Glick had resigned but they declined to comment on the matter. 

Jurasek has been working for Clearlake Capital, the California-based private equity firm that now co-owns Chelsea.

It has been a tough first season for the new owners, who spent £600 million on new players. However, the results have been highly disappointing. 

They sacked Thomas Tuchel in September and appointed Graham Potter as his replacement.

However, the English boss failed to revive the club’s fortunes despite massive backing in the transfer window. 

They are now finalising the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager

The Argentine boss has been praised for his excellent work at Tottenham Hotspur, where he led his side to their first Champions League final in 2019. 

He has been out of work since leaving Paris Saint-Germain in July last year.
