“He’s ambitious, as we are, and it’s a perfect fit. I saw him at one of the games he went to at Stamford Bridge but he was upstairs and I was downstairs!”

Hayes also talked with LA Dodgers owner Mark Boehly ahead of her team’s FA Cup final versus Manchester City on Sunday, and the conversation was immensely pleasant. To have everyone on the same wavelength is a good sign for the future.

A day before meeting Hayes, Boehly made a visit to Tuchel and his team. The Blues would face a difficult challenge in defeating Jorgen Klopp’s side, who won the Carabao Cup final in their previous meeting. The American’s visit reassures the players about the importance of the match for the club’s future, as they aim to end the season with a piece of silverware.

This is a fantastic gesture from the American, who will take over the club at the end of the month and already appears to be a member of the team. His hands-on approach should excite the fans as the club’s future appears bright under such an ambitious owner.
