Graham Potter angry blast Chelsea supporters after Spurs defeat
Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, stated that he fully comprehends the frustration felt by many club followers, who have been calling for him to leave the team.
Recent social media posts from Chelsea are replete with criticism from supporters who want the manager fired.
It doesn’t really get much better at the stadiums.
Following their loss to Southampton at Stamford Bridge the previous Saturday, Potter’s Chelsea team was jeered off the field, and many of its traveling supporters fled Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ten minutes before the final whistle.

Potter acknowledged that these responses were appropriate.
At his post-game press conference, the manager stated, “I can’t necessarily think too much about 40,000 or 50,000 fans” (via Football London).
“I need to concentrate on the next day and the following training session, which are things I can control.
“Our fans have supported the team and been very fair to them. With the fans, I have no issues.
They have a right to be disappointed, unhappy, and angry about the outcomes we’ve achieved, and I’m to blame for that.
I therefore have no issues with the fans.
Potter further contrasted his circumstance with that of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
The fans of each club are dissatisfied with the management because both teams are having difficulties.
But in Klopp’s situation, he has already made significant progress with the team, and Potter is also aware of that.
He said, “That’s just how football is.
I acknowledge that I haven’t contributed enough to this club to have excessive good faith.
Potter’s future at Chelsea will ultimately be decided by the club’s owners and board, therefore the manager’s only option is to work on his team’s performance.
