Without a doubt, Chelsea have won nine games under Graham Potter in 26 games since his appointment as England tactician last September following the departure of Thomas Tuchel. The Blues are already tenth in the Premier League and face Leeds this weekend.
After recent defeats to Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur, fans were dissatisfied with the team’s performance and results. According to the Daily Mail, Todd Boehly has given Graham Potter two matches to save his job.
Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League will determine the next chapter of the Englishman’s career at the Bridge starting next week. Todd Boehly’s leadership has spent £600 million on acquiring new players.
Since the summer transfer window last year. Former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot has urged their Blues chairman Todd Boehly to sack Graham Potter, insisting former Brighton boss ‘would not have lasted’ during his time at the club.
“In my time, Graham Potter would not have lasted,” Melchiot, who represented Chelsea from 1999 to 2004, told ESPN. “No, not while I was playing. I feel bad for him; I know everyone is talking about him, but with results like this… I need to apologize and make a change.”
According to the Daily Mail, the England international has come to an end.
If Chelsea fires Graham Potter, the market for new managers may be limited. Only Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino are currently available for work. However, Luiz Enrique, the manager of Spain’s national team, is another option if necessary.
