Why we appointed Laurence Stewart as Chelsea’s new technical director – Boehly
Todd Boehly, the chairman of Chelsea, has recommended that Laurence Stwart be named the team's new technical director because he is a premier football executive who is familiar with talent management and scouting.
Stewart will work as the technical director for Chelsea's west London team to concentrate on international soccer, the club announced on Wednesday.
Stewart, who is currently the technical director at AS Monaco, will move to the Premier League powerhouses once his obligations there are fulfilled.
He joined the French Ligue 1 club in June 2020.
During Stewart’s time at Monaco, the team recorded consecutive third-place finishes in Ligue 1 and was a finalist in the 2021 French Cup.
Reacting to Stewart’s appointment, Boehly and co-controlling owner Behdad Eghbali said via the club’s official website: “Laurence is an important appointment as we plan to build a deep sporting team that will collaborate closely."
“Laurence is a world-class football leader who understands talent management, data and scouting, player development, and performance.”
