The Chelsea ownership has once again flexed its muscle by sacking another top official, barely two weeks since Thomas Tuchel dismissal.
Damian Willoughby, Chelsea commercial director has been relieved of his duties with immediate effect after claims of sexual harassment and sending of inappropriate messages.
Willoughby has been serving in that role for less than a month, having previously worked for Manchester city and EA sports.
It is understood that he sent the messages before taking up the role at Chelsea.
At Chelsea statement reads;
“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 behavior runs absolutely counter to the workplace environment and corporate culture being established by the club’s new ownership”
