Chelsea SCRAP end-of-season awards after dreadful debut campaign under Todd Boehly despite £600m transfer spend | The Sun

CHELSEA have scrapped their end-of-season awards night after their appalling season.

The Blues are set for a mid-table finish despite spending £600m across two transfer windows.

Four different men have occupied the Stamford Bridge hot seat during Todd Boehly's debut season as co-owner, which will end with Chelsea earning their lowest Premier League points total in modern history.

The club have now taken the decision to bin their in-person awards evening.

Gongs for men's player of the season, academy player of the season and goal of the season will given out before their final game of the season at home against Newcastle instead.

Chelsea have not held an in-person end of season award ceremony since 2019.

Sanctions levelled at former owner Roman Abramovich last year put paid to last year's event.

The coronavirus pandemic stopped events being held in 2020 and 2021.

Mason Mount has won the last two player of the season awards but has struggled for form this season.

He is not the only star who has struggled to thrive during the Blues' challenging campaign with defender Thiago Silva likely the favourite to claim the award.
