    Behdad Eghbali - Chelsea FC co-owner

    Behdad Eghbali will be the next Iranian to co-own a Premier League club after Farhad Moshiri's ownership of Everton.

    He's joined Todd Boehly's group and it was announced today that the group will purchase Chelsea FC for $5 billion:

    We have Iranian owners in Everton and Newcastle too. But doesn’t help Iranian football if they don’t bring Iranian talent to these teams. A lot of these foreign owners bring their countrymen to these teams. Why shouldn’t Iranians?

    Newcastle United is owned by the Saudis. Mehrdad Ghodoussi is only the husband of Amanda Staveley and has practically no say in matters

    It looks like Todd Boehly, part owner of the Dodgers, is leading the buyout and only brought in Clearlake private equity firm co-led by Behdad Eghbali and a Swiss firm for financial support. It is only an investment for Clearlake and they'll probably look to take a profit and get out in a few years. Doubt if Eghbali will have any say in players joining Chelsea.

    ^ Iranians aren’t awful in the top 5 leagues. Iranians are just not fit for the English Premier League. Anywhere else they’ve done and will do fine (Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1..).
