Gary Neville: There's a chance Graham Potter asked to be sacked

Graham Potter did not manage to stay on the Chelsea bench for long and left the London team after only a few months. The team's poor results were crucial for the management to make such a decision. Gary Neville thinks that Potter can be happy after he left the club, given that there are big problems there.

'Graham Potter is a good man. He’ll have gone home after he was sacked and I bet there was an element of relief. I don’t think he was enjoying it there, I bet he will have thought it was mad. What he has been used to in terms of what his view of football is, he will have seen what is going on behind the scenes – they lost Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaia at the start of the season, that wasn’t planned.'

- he said, as quoted by metro.co.uk

Gary Neville: Graham Potter wanted to go

Gary Neville even believes that Potter himself requested the termination of the contract. 'They lost [Thomas] Tuchel, that wasn’t planned.

He has come into a club that is in massive transition, they [Todd Boehly and co.] have paid millions of pounds, they don’t know what they are doing to be fair, they are learning on the job. He’ll probably think, “These lot are mad”, and actually I suspect that Graham Potter has gone to Winstanley and said, “Get me out of here” The former United defender talked about potential names that could come to the bench of the London team.

‘Everything Chelsea is saying and Boehly is saying is that they have spent £600million and they have done their spending apart from a centre-forward for the next three years. If they sign [Zinedine] Zidane, [Diego] Simeone, Enrique, they are going to want another £300m because they won’t like some of the players they have signed.'
