Graham Potter speaks out on Chelsea board’s backing despite poor run

Graham Potter has been discussing the Chelsea board’s support of him.


Chelsea headed into the Crystal Palace game on a dismal run of form.

The Blues have won just one of their last eight outings across all competitions.

This has seen pressure mount on Graham Potter and Chelsea slip down to 10th in the table

Now, Graham Potter has been asked about the support of the Chelsea board and players and had this to say:

“There are always questions if you don’t get the results,” he said.

“I was under pressure after two defeats before the World Cup break – and that is from the media. In terms of the board, I’ve had full support but I am not naive. If anybody that I work for thinks the problem lies with me then they have every right to say, ‘Thank you very much but it’s not working’. I accept that.”

Potter was also asked if the players were still committed to his ideas, to which he responded: “From what I see, they are professional, responsible, and honest. We’re in a bad moment and we’ve got challenges, everyone suffers from that point.

“January is always complicated no matter where you are because the window is open and human beings are human beings, but I don’t see any problems in that regard. I have the support of the boys and they have mine. We just need to keep working.”
