Four big-name managers linked as Graham Potter replacements at Chelsea, including two CL winners

Posted by

Chelsea are being linked with a number of possible big-name replacements for struggling manager Graham Potter.

The Blues are in dire form under the former Brighton boss, so it could be time to make a change, even though it seems this is not looking at all imminent, as per Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive CaughtOffside column.

Chelsea took a gamble letting Thomas Tuchel go earlier in the season, and it doesn’t exactly look like it’s paid off so far, with Potter struggling to make that step up to taking charge of a big six side.

Fichajes has linked the west London giants with some bigger names who could fit better, with Champions League winners like Zinedine Zidane and Luis Enrique in there.

The report also mentions experienced big names like Mauricio Pochettino and Diego Simeone, and one imagines if things don’t improve soon at Chelsea, these figures would be seen as significant upgrades on Potter.

It will be interesting to see how patient the Chelsea board are with Potter, who has been given plenty of new signings to work with, but with little to show for it so far.

    1. He is already a failure before he was chosen! Wait till ChelseaFC go relegation zone than change?! It will be too late than.

  1. We need Thomas T back, he already knows the culture of the team, he stayed with the team during tough times and he did well with calming thinks down, it could have worse. Thomas T back to Stamford bridge

  2. Chelsea have a man in charge(Boehly)that knows nothing about the game of football,his plan of bringing in Potter has backfired enormously when he should’ve stuck with Tuchel who has proved to be a top Manager.unfortunately Potter needs more experience in getting a team in the top six before he was given the chance at Chelsea,Boehly appointed Potter because he’s English and wanted the fans behind him,Now he’s proved to all of us that he can’t be trusted just like(Hicks&Gillette)did at Liverpool. The sooner he sells the club the better for the club and should go back to playing with bat and balls.

  3. Chelsea is a little too big for Potter to manage. It’s like being in the cockpit of B747 when you’re used to flying a chopper.

  4. It’s time Boehly stopped playing guessing game. If he cannot run Chelsea as a proper manager then he can comfortably sell it to someone who knows more about football and is passionate about Chelsea. We as the Chelsea fans are displeased with his behaviors. It’s good he’s given us good players like Enzo and Felix, but holding on to a coach who has shown that he cannot handle what’s ahead of him is pure disgrace. He has only 2 options, sell the team to someone who will manage the team well,(possibly back to Roman) or fire Potter and get us a proper coach (possibly swallow his pride and bring Tuchel back)

  5. Potter should be sacked immediately, imagine big club like Chelsea is not in premier league top 4 and will not even play Europa league

  6. the truth is we the chelsea fans in africa are really disappointed with the way things are going with the club,from hero to zero . Bohley is a good man and has good plans for the club going by what he has invested so far on new recruits but to be candid potter is not the man for the job it is crystal clear. please sir Bohley you are the owner of the club but the fans are the club and we are saying potter is no longer needed he is make a great club like chelsea a subject of mediocrity ,pls bring back TUCHEL he is a good manager and tell him what you want he can deliver.
