Todd Boehly heckled by Chelsea fan shouting target Anthony Gordon is ‘s***’

Todd Boehly received some advice while he was at Stamford Bridge in attendance at Chelsea’s match with Leicester.

The American owner was heckled by a Blues fan, who filmed the incident from the stand above where he was positioned.

As the Chelsea owner was standing in his own special box at the ground to watch his side’s 2-1 win over the Foxes, the crowd member yelled: “Todd! Don’t buy Gordon – he’s s***!”

The fan was talking about the rumours linking the Blues with Antony Gordon of Everton. The youngster has been linked with a move to the west London – but the club’s bids, a £40milllion and a £60million offer, were wide of the mark.

Boehly has very much thrown himself into the job at Chelsea – helping the side get deals over the line for Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, and a number of youngsters.

Do you think Gordon would be a good move for Chelsea? Let us know in the comments section.


But the interest of Gordon hasn’t gone down well with fans, who feel as though the attacker is not up to the required standard needed for the side.

One fan wrote online about the potential deal: “Chelsea loaning out Hudson-Odoi and bringing in Gordon for £60m has broken my head. Nothing in football has ever made less sense than this.”

Another said: “Incredible watching Anthony Gordon score what will prob be his last goal for next two seasons after Chelsea pay 70 million for him to fill the Danny Drinkwater role.”

But Frank Lampard has been full of praise for the 21-year-old, talking up his potential and how much he means to Everton.

The Chelsea legend and current Toffees boss said: "I've been fortunate enough to work with fantastic young players in my time at Derby and Chelsea, see them develop, see them become England internationals, Champions League winners, worth maybe triple figures of their values. And Anthony ) is in that bracket."

At the Bridge, the Blues managed to squeeze past Leicester 2-1 despite being down to ten men early on. Just a few miles away Gordon scored in Everton's 1-1 draw at Brentford.
