Former Crystal Palace owner says Chelsea owner Boehly is acting silly; Here is everything he said.

Chelsea owner have always came into the dressing room after every match to talk to the players and the former owner of Crystal Palace doesn’t think this is right.

News came in this week that Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly was a regular in their team’s changing rooms after games.

Boehly recently told the players one of their performances was disgraceful and embarrassing.

Speaking on his talkSPORT show, Jordan stated: “Some of the things that are going on are very ill-advised, it is silly to allow yourself a reputation as someone who goes into dressing rooms and involve yourself in what is going on in there.

There is no place for you there. Maybe pop in at the start and the end of the season, but you don’t get involved on a regular basis popping into the dressing room. The players are not interested in what you have to say.

Jordan added: “Players are managed by managers. The moment you bring that relationship you have as a chairman available at certain points to a player, you will find it abused.

“I used to go in every now and then, hide round the back and listen to the team talks – especially [Neil] Warnock – because I enjoyed it and I wanted to get a feel. At the end of the season I’d go in and say “let’s pick ourselves up again and go again”

“On a regular basis no because I think it was mixed messaging, it was undermining the manager’s authority and I think it allowed relationships to develop with players that were not healthy for the wellbeing of a manager.”
