Even Alex Ferguson cannot win trophies at Chelsea – Joe Cole


Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole has said even former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, cannot win trophies at Stamford Bridge as it stands now.

Cole believes Graham Potter should be given the time to implement his ideas at Chelsea.

He said Ferguson would struggle to compete with Manchester City, adding that it could be years before the Blues are competing for the league title again.

Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel in early September, with Chelsea opting to sack the German after a difficult start to the campaign.

“When you come to Chelsea, you have to win games and trophies”’ Cole told the Sun.

“The club has been built on that in the last 20 years. The fans are used to big games and going to cup finals, so Potter can’t just disregard that. It will always be in the background.

“But with so much newness around the club, they seem to have gone away from that immediate success plan that Chelsea is normally associated with.

“You could employ Sir Alex and Brian Clough, all the all-time greats of management together, and they still wouldn’t make an immediate impact in chipping away at City, competing for trophies with them.”
