Chelsea bidders the Ricketts family ‘believe dirty tricks from rivals’ may derail takeover

The Ricketts family reportedly believe that rival bidders are playing ‘dirty tricks’ on them to derail their Chelsea takeover attempt. The Blues have whittled their list of prospective owners down to four separate approaches and the process is set to conclude within the next 10 days.

Sections of Chelsea fans have voiced concerns over the Ricketts family’s takeover bid, partially due to the emergence of Islamophobic emails from Joe Ricketts who is not involved in the takeover bid. Backed by American hedge fund tycoon Ken Griffin, the group have laid out an eight-point plan to try and ease fans’ concerns.

Even so, a small group of supporters gathered outside of Stamford Bridge before they were thrashed 4-1 by Brentford on Saturday. ESPN claim that figures from within the Ricketts family bid believe that rival takeover hopefuls are playing ‘dirty tricks’ by encouraging the protests.
