Guardiola didn’t start winning immediately at Man City – Potter hits back at critics


Graham Potter has hit back at those who are expecting him to immediately start winning things for Chelsea.

After his latest defeat in the Premier League to Manchester City, some fans said he was running out at Stamford Bridge but the Englishman has sent a message to those who want him sacked.

Potter only joined Chelsea In September after owners of the club sacked Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea are 10th in the Premier League table, 10 points off the top four after spending around £280m on new players ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

“The owners are billionaires so they’re quite smart,” he told the press on Saturday.

“Smarter than me, that’s for sure. So they understand the challenges that we have and the direction we want to go in.

“I’ve been here for four months and five, six weeks of that have been lost to international football.

“I think Pep (Guardiola) was (at Manchester City) a year before they’d won anything, and then obviously Mikel (Arteta) and Jurgen (Klopp) took a bit of time.”
