Chelsea Co-owner Todd Boehly Sacks Another Top Director Over Misconduct.

After learning about former Manchester City and EA Sports vice-president Damian Willoughby exchanged "inappropriate texts" to a female football agent prior to being hired by the Premier League team, Chelsea announced they have immediately terminated his job nearly a month later after he was hired.

Todd Boehly’s ride since becoming the co-owner of Chelsea Football Club has certainly been a wild one so far, and he’s only just getting started.

He is looking to build a dynasty at the club and get them back to the very top, and we saw his aspirations during the transfer window where he spent over £250m improving the squad.

Willoughby started working for Chelsea earlier this month after an investment group led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital acquired the team.

"Evidence of inappropriate messages sent by Mr Willoughby, prior to his appointment at Chelsea FC earlier this month, has recently been provided to and investigated by the club," a club spokesperson told Reuters.

"While they were sent prior to his employment at the club, such behaviour runs absolutely counter to the workplace environment and corporate culture being established by the club's new ownership."

A request for comment from Reuters has not received a response from Willoughby.

According to The Telegraph, Willoughby started communicating with a football finance agent last year. The report also stated that Willoughby's attorneys had opted not to respond.
