Peter Kenyon considers future at Chelsea


Recommended Posts

Peter Kenyon is considering leaving Chelsea on a high after successfully renegotiating the club's shirt sponsorship deal with Samsung.

The club are expected to announce an extension to their existing five-year deal this week, which is believed to be an improvement on the present £11million-a-year package.

Kenyon, the chief executive, has been focusing on commercial work for some time as others at the club have come to the fore on the football side, and after concluding negotiations with the Korean electronics company he is weighing up whether it is the right time to move on. He is understood to have felt increasingly sidelined in recent months: he played little part in the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as manager last month, and was on holiday when Luiz Felipe Scolari was sacked in February.

Chelsea's promotion of Frank Arnesen to the new position of sporting director this week was another blow to Kenyon, because there is bound to be an overlap between their respective roles. The Dane was in charge of youth development and scouting, but will take greater responsibility for signing first-team players, an area previously headed by Kenyon.

The 55-year-old kept a low profile when Ancelotti was introduced to the media last week and is not expected to appear to promote the Samsung deal, another indication that he may be on his way out. Kenyon does not have another job to go to, but there have been persistent rumours linking him with a move to Manchester City and, given his wealth of experience with Manchester United, where he was also chief executive, and Chelsea he is unlikely to be short of offers.

Chelsea are adamant that Kenyon is staying and have no plans to dismiss him.

Kenyon should stick to what he does best! And that is doing the sponsorship deals and the marketing of the club, when it comes to any footballing side of the business he should leave well alone. I think he has done well for the club in marketing terms but has cocked up on the footballing side a number of times.

The quicker the greedy manc cunt fucks off the better. The sight of him leading the players up to collect their runners up medals in Moscow will fucking haunt me forever.

Personally I agree 100% CM. That fucking inane grin on his face as he led the players up the steps sticks in my mind too. He may be good with the advertising and sponsership deals, but he had no right that day to do that. He lost what little respect i had for him before that happened.

we have a more superior brand name worldwide than arsenal & liverpool combined thanks to peter kenyon and he did the same with manchester united.

he has changed this club for the better, but of course he just gets on with his job instead of bragging about it, peter kenyon revolutionized manchester united just like he will continue to do so here.

i'd rather sell essien & drogba than see kenyon leave Chelsea.

Then you are an idiot.

after all he's done to change the club's image forever, people will judge him based on a facial expression he apparently pulled for a few seconds.

jesus christ.. this is why we are in recession.

The most important game in the history of our club, and you call it a facial expression. Well he embarrassed us and made us a laughing stock with the media. I'm not sure why you are showing loyalty to this bounty hunter anyway. He will go where the money is, as he proved when he left the club he professes to support.

Kenyon deserves more credit than most people think, he is responsible for quite a few of the deals and decisions that have made Chelsea what is today.

However it's not hard to see how frustrated some fans may get by him. Whilst I wouldn't go as for as saying we'd rather sell Essien & Drogba than lose Kenyon, there's more to thank him for than you think.

Exactly.. HE may have fucked up on the footballing side a few times, but he is unparalleled when it comes to brand promotion and marketing strategies !!! Chelsea is now a household name even in Asia and Africa. COme to think of it. Where were we a decade back ?? It was just the Europe and mostly UK alone...
