Graham Potter explains Chelsea problems that are hard for people to understand: What he said

This same problem Graham Potter is trying to explain could be another excuse to Loose against Manchester City this evening in this FA Cup tie and here is what he said;


In quotes relayed by Absolute Chelsea, Potter was keen to stress that today, Chelsea are a completely different club to what they were in the last 20 years.

He was asked if he feels lucky to be at Chelsea considering the previous handling of managers’ future at the club when results declined just like they are at the moment.

He replied: “I would always feel lucky to be at Chelsea because I am grateful and privileged to be here. I understand where you are coming from but there is a completely different ownership than there was. That is hard for some people to get their head around because for 20 years Chelsea was one thing and now all of a sudden it’s different.


“Yet people still think back to what happened in the past 20 years. That is normal but it is completely different. But again, the reason for me to take the job was the chance to shape a club that is in a massive transitional period. It’s huge. Twenty years is a long time to have that leadership and then to change.

“With that, I knew there were going to be extreme challenges for sure. It’s not like I jumped at the first opportunity to leave Brighton, I had other opportunities to leave if I wanted to previously. But this one felt right because of the owners, because of the support I felt they would, and that has proved to be the case. They’ve been fantastic.”
