Chelsea Manager Graham Potter has revealed that he has received death threats; the Blues are tenth in the Premier League
Chelsea faces Tottenham away on Sunday in the Premier League amid claims by manager Graham Potter that he has received death threats. In the five months in charge of Chelsea, Graham Potter has faced criticism for his laid-back image amid a really poor campaign by top Premier League club standards.
Speaking to SkySports, the manager affirmed his will to win at Chelsea despite the poor run of form,
“Anyone can get angry but it’s about getting angry at the right time, in the right place, with the right person. I think you’ve got to do what’s right for the team and the club.
“The anger’s there. The feeling’s there. If I was a bit egotistic and a bit selfish, maybe it would come out a bit more. But I think that actually part of the job is to put yourself second and to think about the team and the club, and that’s what I’ve done in all of my jobs and it’s served me well.”
In a statement, the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust showed their support for the manager, “The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust is appalled that Graham Potter and his family have been subjected to death threats.
“The actions of these individuals are disgusting, and they do not represent Chelsea FC supporters. No manager and their family should be subjected to any threats of this nature – we are deeply disappointed.
“While debate and criticism regarding personnel and performances are part of the game, this must never escalate into abusive behaviour directed at individuals and family members.
“These threats are beyond unacceptable and we support any subsequent investigation.”
