Chelsea chairman to step down after 19 years

Chelsea chairman, Bruce Buck will step down from his role on June 30 and will now become a "senior adviser" of the club. Buck, who had been at the Stamford Bridge since Roman Abramovich became the owner of the club in 2003 was initially announced to continue in the role after the Boehly-led takeover last month. But Blues new owner, Todd Boehly will now become the chairman of the club after a change of direction. "Now is the right time to step down and let new ownership build on the strong foundations we have in place," Buck said. "The owners have a compelling vision for Chelsea's future and I look forward to helping them achieve it in this new role alongside our incredible staff, players, coaches and supporters." "I am proud to have helped Chelsea realize great success on the pitch and make a positive impact in the community," he added. During Buck's 19 year stint with the club, Chelsea won 30 major trophies; their men won 18 and their women team won 12.
