How will Buck remembered at Chelsea?

“Bruce has led Chelsea Football Club to the highest levels of international and domestic football, while also developing one of the most active social responsibility projects in the sport. We thank Bruce for his service and his commitment to the club.” Huh.”

GOAL’s Chelsea correspondent Nizar Kinsella writes:

Buck was a divisive figure among Chelsea supporters. His legacy includes much of the downside of his 20 years at the helm: which includes trying to buy the land on which Stamford Bridge sits from Chelsea fans, while he also took an active part in the formation of the Super League.

However, he also sat as president of the Chelsea Foundation, which won numerous awards for giving back within football. Before the Super League defeat, he was one of the most influential Premier League presidents.

He lives close to Chelsea and clearly loves the club. He will likely continue to be invited to the director’s box and remain on the payroll as a consultant.
