The State of Chelsea FC

The State of Chelsea FC

On Sunday, Chelsea fired head coach Graham Potter after less than 7 months of being in charge, with a dismaying record of 12 wins out of 31 games. How did it all come to grief? 

“Of course, there were mixed emotions for everyone. It is not that, I don’t know, whether everyone is upset, given, how many players we have in the squad… that everyone is frustrated or happy.”

Chelsea forward Kai Havertz shares his thoughts on the club’s state during the post-match interview. It is clear from his response that there is a mixed reaction to their former manager being fired, some players in the squad were for Potter being fired and others were not. Clearly there were players in the group hoping for more chances under a new manager, unfortunately for them, plans have changed. 

Blues winger Mykhailo Mudryk, purchased for €100m, stands in revelation after another toothless and disappointing Chelsea loss.

Sunday was a dark day for Chelsea fans and owners, whats ahead could be much, much worse. Chelsea stands 11th in the Premier League table. A date with Real Madrid looms in the quarterfinals of the Champions League next week. Winning is Chelsea’s only option for playing in it again next season, although that possibility seems implausible.
