Chelsea: Bruno Saltor Reflects on ‘Difficult 24 Hours’ After Graham Potter Sacking

Date:

It has been a tumultuous 24 hours for the Chelsea Football Club, with the sacking of Graham Potter and his assistant Billy Reid. Interim head coach Bruno Saltor, who was part of Potter’s coaching staff at Brighton, expressed his sadness at the news. He said it was difficult to deal with the emotions of the situation, as well as having to do the press conference and guide the players.

Chelsea issued a statement saying Potter had agreed to collaborate with the club to facilitate a smooth transition. Bruno said he was trying to keep the process going and that he was grateful for the support of the club’s owners. Potter was dismissed with Chelsea 11th in the Premier League table, 12 points off the top four with 10 games remaining.

Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton said the timing of Potter’s departure showed “sheer panic” from owner Todd Boehly. Ex-Manchester City defender Micah Richards said too much blame was being put on Boehly rather than Potter. Former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville said Chelsea’s new owners have been “chaotic”, having spent £600m on transfers since last year’s takeover. He believes former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino would be the best replacement for Potter.

Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi, who replaced Potter in September, said the Chelsea players must accept some responsibility for their poor results. He expressed his gratitude to Potter for leaving him with a team with a good mentality and attitude.

Augustus, Mark, Sean, Chris and David all had their views on Potter’s sacking and who should replace him. Augustus suggested Julian Nagelsmann, Mark said too much blame was being put on Boehly, Sean said Thomas Tuchel should have been kept on, Chris said Potter will be back in successful management soon and David suggested Zinedine Zidane, Luis Enrique or Nagelsmann.

The Chelsea Football Club has been through a difficult time in the past 24 hours. It is clear that emotions are running high and that there is a lot of speculation over who will replace Potter as manager. What is certain is that whoever takes over will have a tough job ahead of them as they look to turn around the fortunes of the club.
