0 36

Chelsea have terminated the employement of commercial director Damian Willoughby after it was discovered he sent imappropriate messages.

Chelsea has stated that commercial director Damian Willoughby’s employment has been terminated with immediate effect after reports shows that he had sent “inappropriate messages” before being appointed by the club.

Willoughby was employed by Chelsea this month after the club’s takeover by an investment group led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital.

According to a spokeperson from Chelsea stated that: “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.

“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.”

Willoughby has yet to reply to a request for comment from Reuters.

The Telegraph, which first reported the story, said that Willoughby had been sending the messages to a football finance agent from last year. The report said that Willoughby’s lawyers had declined to comment.
