Breaking news: Graham Potter, the head coach of Chelsea Football Club, has been sacked just seven months after being appointed amidst much fanfare. Despite being hailed as a long-term solution, Potter’s tenure was cut short after the club’s recent record spending in the January transfer window failed to turn around their Premier League form.
Despite their Champions League quarter-final berth, which will see them face off against Real Madrid, Saturday’s 2-0 loss against Aston Villa proved to be the final straw. As a result, Potter has parted ways with the club, with Bruno Saltor taking over as the team’s interim head coach.
With just three wins in their last ten league games, Saltor’s first game in charge will be against Liverpool, and the club’s co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali have expressed their disappointment over Potter’s departure. Nonetheless, they remain optimistic about the future, and have pledged their unwavering support for Saltor and his team as they look to end the season on a high.
