CHELSEA’S WORST MANAGER EVER? WHERE IT ALL WENT WRONG FOR GRAHAM POTTER

Date:

Todd Boehly and the Clearlake Capital consortium’s big gamble has backfired – in spectacular fashion. Chelsea’s new owners made a huge statement of intent when they ruthlessly sacked Thomas Tuchel last September before bringing in Graham Potter as the German’s replacement, prising him away from Brighton on a five-year contract.

Potter worked wonders at the Amex Stadium, but questions were immediately raised over whether he could handle the pressure of life at one of the world’s biggest clubs. As it turned out, he simply wasn’t up to the task.

Chelsea recorded 11 defeats and eight draws alongside just 12 victories during the 47-year-old’s ill-fated reign, with a dismal 2-0 home loss to Aston Villa on Saturday proving to be the final straw for the board.

Boehly’s man was given a lengthy stay of execution that would not have been afforded to any of his predecessors that served under Roman Abramovich, and the Blues are languishing down in 11th in the Premier League as a result of that misguided patience.

So where exactly did it it all go so wrong for Potter at Stamford Bridge? Source: goal.com
