Chief executive Gourlay to leave Chelsea

Chief executive Ron Gourlay is leaving Chelsea.

Gourlay has been at Stamford Bridge for 10 years, spending five of them in his current role.

On announcing his departure, he thanked owner Roman Abramovich and others at the club.

“It has been a privilege to have played a role in the club’s considerable achievements both on and off the pitch over the last 10 years, but I feel the time is right to move on to other challenges,” Gourlay said.

“I would like to thank Mr Abramovich, the directors, the manager and players and all the staff for their support during my time at the club, and wish them much continued success in the future.”
