After Thomas Tuchel was fired from his position as manager of Stamford Bridge in September, the former Brighton manager took over.
Potter’s tenure as Chelsea manager, however, has gotten off to a faltering start; throughout the past few months, both performances and results have been inconsistent.
The Blues are now in eighth place in the Premier League, 16 points behind league leaders Arsenal and six points behind fourth-place Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite having a contract that lasts until 2027, Potter has now been informed that he risks being fired if he cannot lead Chelsea back into the top four.
“We haven’t been great ourselves and we can’t claim we were playing well in the final two or three weeks, at least, of the Premier League season before the break,” Potter remarked following Tuesday night’s 2-0 victory against Bournemouth.
We must strike a balance between the two and get some perspective. You must keep in mind the rapid transitions this club underwent in a short period of time. It has been really important, therefore you must deal with it, attempt to stabilize the situation, and work to strengthen the team.
This weekend, Chelsea will face off against Nottingham Forest in an effort to secure a spot in the Champions League for the next campaign.
