One of the main topics that has recently been massaged in European football is the scandalous dismissal of Graham Potter from London's Chelsea. The Blues are having a tough season and have lost their first game under new head coach Frank Lampard. What results will Chelsea be able to show in the future? Predictions from experts like Zakir Mirshanovare available via the link.
Prior to Chelsea, during his career, Potter coached teams such as Östersund, Swansea and Brighton. To be honest, not the most impressive track record for the manager of such a top club as Chelsea. And at the same time, the plans of the Blues owners were to appoint a coach who would work on the project in the next few years. That is why Potter was given a contract for five years at once, and not for two or three seasons.
The bet obviously didn't work. And Chelsea management can be blamed for this: good specialists were available on the market who won big trophies in their careers, who could work under pressure in a big team. Betting on a coach who has only the third and fourth leagues in Sweden, as well as the local cup, in his track record of trophies, is not an idea.
In all the clubs where Potter worked, there was no such pressure before. And the coach was simply not ready for it.
