EPL Nerve being tested – Neville reveals why Chelsea’s Graham Potter is yet to get sacked, Chelsea manager Graham Poter has received a warning from Manchester United great Gary Neville that Chelsea’s owners won’t be patient for much longer.
Nevile is of the opinion that Poitter has continued to work for the company despite being fired previously in order to hire him, merely because they want to act morally.
On Saturday, Chelsea lost shockingly to bottom-of-the-table Southampton 1-0, with James Ward-free-kick Prowse’s at Stamford Bridge determining the outcome.
The former Manchester United defender claimed on the Gary Neville Podcast that the former Brightin manager is presently under tremendous pressure, as seen by Chelsea’s jeering of him after Saturday’s loss.
“Potter is dealing with a lot of strain. His face reveals it, too. The booing at the conclusion of the game seemed a bit foreboding, according to Neville.
“I think they’ll want to do the right thing, the Chelsea owners,” Neville said, implying that Thomas Tuchel’s continued employment at Stamford Bridge is due to recent investments the club has made under Potter’s leadership as well as Tuchel’s dismissal.
Chelsea spent about £600 million on new players over the course of the previous two transfer windows.
Nevertheless, he said, “I suppose that nerve is being tested, as any owner would be when you’ve spent that level of money and you’re losing games at home to the (team) bottom of the league.” The former Manchester United player recommended the club’s owners against dismissing the coach.
