It has been learned that Chelsea chairman Todd Bohli has heavily linked the contracts of his players to the club’s poor performances. Chelsea players, who agreed new deals last year, will see their wages drop by up to 30 percent if the London-based outfit fail to qualify for the Champions League, according to multiple outlets.
However, not all Chelsea players will be affected by this clause. It is learned that footballers who have signed contracts since the acquisition of Bohli in May last year will face pay cuts.
Amid Chelsea’s dismal run this season, defender Thiago Silva has urged a solution to the club’s woes on the field. The Brazilian realized that a brand new strategy was urgently needed to ensure his success next season.
“If we don’t own up to our responsibilities it’s not enough to look at the coach, say ‘it’s this person’s fault, it’s that person’s fault’. We have to stop and strategize not to repeat the same mistakes next year Will happen.
Chelsea’s run in this season’s Champions League ended in the quarter-finals. The Premier League side had suffered a 2–0 defeat in the first leg of the quarter-finals. The scenario did not change much in the reverse fixtures. A brace from Real Madrid striker Rodrigo was enough to pip Frank Lampard’s men in the second leg of the tie.
Chelsea are currently in 11th place in the Premier League. The Stamford Bridge-based side have not tasted success in their last seven fixtures in all competitions. His last victory came in March. With 10 wins so far in the Premier League, Chelsea have 39 points from 31 matches.
In their next assignment, Chelsea will host Brentford in the Premier League on 27 April.
