Potter has ‘no complaints’ with criticism from Chelsea fans after petition to sack manager emerges
A petition to sack Graham Potter has been set up by Chelsea fans after the head coach admitted he has ‘no complaints’ with the Blues supporters.
The Blues are on a miserable run of form, having scored just one goal in the last six matches in all competitions.
Potter is under increasing pressure to turn things around at Stamford Bridge after two wins in 15 matches, one of the worst records in recent history.
Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital backed the head coach in the January transfer window, but results have not followed the lavish spending spree.
Enzo Fernandez came in for a British transfer record and has been a bright spark, despite results not improving.
Chelsea fell to defeat to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in disappointing fashion after going in level at half-time.
Spurs netted the opener just a minute after the game resumed, with Oliver Skipp firing past Kepa Arrizabalaga, who should have done better.
Harry Kane added a second on the 82nd minute as Potter’s side fell to yet another defeat.
After the loss, Chelsea fans took to social media to share petitions requesting for Potter’s dismissal as they make their frustrations known.
Attending fans at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks have become frustrated, as displayed last time out when the Chelsea side were booed off at half-time and full-time against Southampton.
However, Potter has no issues with the supporters who are voicing their concerns.
Speaking to the press after the defeat to Spurs, as quoted by Adam Newson, Potter discussed the Chelsea faithful.
“I can’t necessarily think too much 40,000 or 50,000 people,” he said when asked about the criticism. “I need to focus on what I can control, which is the next day and the next training session.
“Our supporters have been very fair and I have supported the team. I’ve no complaints with the supporters. They are entitled to be frustrated, upset and angry with the results we’ve got and that is my responsibility. So I have no complaints with the supporters.”
