Graham Potter admits he ‘can’t rely on board support forever’ following Chelsea F.C.’s winless run in six games after defeat at Tottenham.
Chelsea Online News:
Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea F.C. after their 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, acknowledged his team’s recent form and expressed his team’s commitment to improving their difficult circumstances.
Potter responded to a question from Sky Sports regarding the support he has received from a board that has spent approximately £600 million ($717 million) on new signings this season:
“Confidence isn’t massively high, of course. It’s the same in any job anywhere. If results aren’t good enough, which they aren’t, you can’t rely on support forever. My job is to keep going.”

Chelsea is currently 14 points behind the top four and only 10 points above the relegation zone, having gone six games without a victory in all competitions. They have also failed to win any of their last eight away Premier League games, which is the longest of such streak since March 2001. Adding to the issues with form, Potter said:
“I know the responsibility. It’s not good enough for this club. I take full responsibility for those results. It isn’t good enough for Chelsea. I know the personality and quality in the team. A tough period of time.”
