Further unsolicited stars back Potter as Chelsea boss

Following another desperate win for Chelsea and their head coach Graham Potter, further unsolicited Blues stars have backed the Englishman as manager.

I wouldn’t say that Potter is back in the overall good graces of the Chelsea fan base. Was he ever?! But I think he gained some deserved credibility at Stamford Bridge for CFC and himself over three very important days. Don’t get me wrong, I remain unconvinced that the former Brighton & Hove Albion man is right for the big job in west London. I am also aware that the #PotterOut group are probably still spreading their understandable propaganda. Not to mention more tough games on the horizon.

However, I do understand why Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali believed in their choice to begin with and stuck by him until this week. Sort of. Although, their grand plan was looking like being disrupted before defeating Leeds United on Fulham Road. A distinctly atmospheric evening came next at the Bridge as Borussia Dortmund were rather brushed aside, in my opinion at least. You could sense something special before and during the game, early on the match felt especially different and emotionally charged. After the final whistle, some CFC personnel advocated for their under pressure boss.

Koulibaly was speaking out positively on Potter prior to the two crucial matches, in fact. The Senegal international believes the 47-year-old is a ‘great manager’, firstly. Furthermore, and importantly, the uncompromising centreback claims that his gaffer treats everyone in the squad the same, in spite of status or transfer fees. It is nice to hear that the former doesn’t differentiate or discriminate.

Kai Havertz then revealed that the squad are 100 per cent behind their leader. Meanwhile, journalist Ben Jacobs suggested that nobody pressurised Blues into backing Potter.
