After “less than seven months” in command, Graham Potter was fired by Chelsea
Following Saturday’s 2-0 home loss to Aston Villa, Chelsea fired manager Graham Potter after “less than 7 months in charge.” After replacing Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge on September 8, it was the “Englishman’s 11th loss in 31 games.”
With more than £550 million spent on new players this season, Chelsea has slipped to 11th in the Premier League, 12 points behind the top four. The club’s owners expressed their disappointment at firing Potter.
Bruno Saltor, who worked with Potter at Brighton, will lead the team as temporary head coach, according to Chelsea, who also claim that Potter has assent to assist the club to enable a “smooth transition.”
The co-controlling owners, Behdad Eghbali and Todd Boehly, stated in a statement: “We have the utmost admiration for Graham as a coach and as a person.”
On April 12, Chelsea will play “Real Madrid” in the first leg of their “Champions League quarterfinal,” after hosting Liverpool in the “Premier League” on Tuesday.
As of Sunday, Brendan Rodgers had also been fired by Leicester, bringing the total number of managerial changes in the “Premier League” this year to 13, three more than in any other prior campaign.
There are just 10 Premier League games left, while the quarterfinals of the “Champions League” are drawing near. To end the season on a good note, we will give each of those games our complete attention.
“Former right-back for Brighton, 42-year-old Bruno played there for seven years before departing and transitioning to coaching in 2019.”
After getting over the “club” in May 2022, Boehly hired Potter, an Englishman who made an “impression during his three years at Brighton.”
After investing £255 million on new players over the summer, the Blues finished sixth in “the Premier League” in September, and Potter replaced Tuchel, who had won three titles in 20 months at “Stamford Bridge.” Billy Beuerly, the owner, reportedly spent a further staggering £288 million in January.
Eight players, including “Ukrainian forward Mykhailo Mudryk” and “Argentina midfielder Enzo Fernandez,” were added in the middle of the season, but they have struggled to fit in.
