Chelsea Take First Steps Towards Solving Worrying Injury Crisis
- Todd Boehly is amid a massive shakeup at Chelsea after his takeover last year
- One of those major changes was the departure of the club's chief medical officer
- The first team has been riddled with many injuries and the Blues need solutions
Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital took over Chelsea last March for many millions, after Roman Abramovich was forced to sell the club due to sanctions by the United Kingdom government over Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
The new owners have witnessed many departures since then, with key components like Bruce Buck, Petr Cech, Marina Granovskaia and even head coach, Thomas Tuchel all leaving the club.
With the team struggling for results on the pitch, the impact is perhaps being felt most with the absence of the former Blues coach.
However, a far more important impact was felt with the departure of chief medical officer, Paco Biosca, as reported by Chelsea Chronicles.

Chelsea hire physios as solution
These players could form a separate starting XI that looks better on paper than what is available to Graham Potter for selection at this stage.
The injury problems are gradually coming to an end, with only N'golo Kante, Christian Pulisic and long-term absentee and young striker, Armando Broja the ones still out.
Others are either fit for selection or undertaking team training.
As reported by Sun UK, Boehly has hired two top physicians to help prevent the recurrence of the injuries suffered by the players, especially in terms of hamstring issues.

Chelsea fans on Enrique rumours
The hiring and firing of managers was one of the blueprints for success under former owner, Abramovich. He vowed to discontinue that by trusting Potter with a five-year contract.
Sports Brief reported that while results on the pitch were discouraging, fans want stability and believe it would be worth sacking Potter before he is given a real chance.
