Chelsea Football Club announces that Ron Gourlay, after 10 successful years at the club including five as Chief Executive, is leaving Chelsea in order to pursue new business opportunities.

The club, and in particular the owner and directors, wish to thank Ron for his many years of service to Chelsea and support his desire to seek new challenges. Ron’s efforts have helped the club to achieve its position as one of the leading football clubs in the world.

Pending additional appointments, Chairman Bruce Buck and Director Marina Granovskaia will assume additional executive responsibilities.

Ron said: ‘It has been a privilege to have played a role in the club’s considerable achievements both on and off the pitch over the last 10 years, but I feel the time is right to move on to other challenges. I would like to thank Mr Abramovich, the directors, the manager and players and all the staff for their support during my time at the club, and wish them much continued success in the future.’

Really shocking news.

I'd like to say thanks for Gourlay for all of his work.

I've been reading up on Marina, apparently she is quite the business woman so I imagine she'll pick up his work.

It should be noted that Mou forced someone (can't remember his name) out of the Real Madrid board after his first season, this could be more of the same

I don't think Mourinho forced him out. I think he just wanted to move on.

That would make the situation interesting.
Perhaps they have someone lined up to replace him?

Not too much, he's still good mates with Roman and I doubt he has a better job (a job at all)

It's been bandied about hypothetically for years.


This would be Roman's chance to make it happen.

To be fair, Grants inability as a manger shouldn't mean he couldn't take on a position like this, they're extremely different roles

He's generally incompetent and totally feckless.

Marina Granovskaia set to run the show at Chelsea as Ron Gourlay quits chief executive role at Stamford Bridge:
Chelsea have announced that Ron Gourlay is to leave his role as chief executive at the London club, and Marina Granovskaia, one of Roman Abramovich's advisers, is now set for a bigger role behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2803380/chelsea-announce-ron-gourlay-leave-role-chief-executive-10-years-club.html


Some behind-the-scenes information in here, allegedly.


Whether it's accurate or they just know dick all and are making shit up as they go along (the likelier of the 2 possibilities), I have no idea.
