Chelsea: a decision falls for Potter


Chelsea leaders have spoken out about the situation of English coach Graham Potter, weakened by the still negative spiral of the London capital club.

Graham Potter, Chelsea

It cannot be said that Graham Potter, appointed new coach last September in place of the German Thomas Tuchel, has allowed Chelsea to raise their heads. In 25 games led in all competitions, the Blues have gleaned only nine victories under the orders of the English manager, for seven draws and nine defeats. And it is not the latest results that lend themselves to optimism. In their last ten outings, Thiago Silva’s partners have won only one match and remain on two defeats in a row against Borussia Dortmund (0-1), in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League, and Southampton (0-1), as part of the 24th day of the Premier League.

Relegated to eleven points from the Big Four

However, Chelsea’s bad pass will not upset the leaders’ plans. According to the information provided by the DailyMail, the Stamford Bridge-based club have maintained their confidence in the former Brighton and Hove Albion technician. Todd Boehly, its owner, has no intention of sacking the 47-year-old Englishman. The media specifies that the London staff wants to follow in the footsteps of Arsenal, which has never thanked its coach Mikel Arteta, now at the head of the Premier League leaders Gunners.

Supporters will have to be patient before their proteges return to the top. Only tenth in the Premier League, eleven lengths behind fourth Tottenham, the last place that will offer a ticket to the next edition of the Champions League, Chelsea have been eliminated from the two national cups. Remains the C1 and the round of 16 return against the Borussen, on March 7 at Stamford Bridge.
