Man Utd hero McGrath: Potter in danger at Chelsea


Manchester United hero Paul McGrath believes Graham Potter faces the sack at Chelsea.

Ahead of their FA Cup tie at Manchester City, McGrath wrote for the Sunday World: "Football isn't fair and if Chelsea lose today, the owners have a choice.

"Do they persist with Potter or take the financial hit in firing him and his staff, then go for a big-name manager to try and restore the club to the heights?

"The better Eddie Howe does with Newcastle, the worse it gets for Potter.

"There's a young English football manager who has had success, relatively so, with both Bournemouth and Newcastle. So it can be done.

"So far, the Chelsea supporters have stood with Potter, which seems fair enough, and that will stand to him.

"As it is, there is no clamour from the fans for change, they perhaps realise that Roman Abramovich's constant hiring and firing has helped to put the club in its current pickle.

"But the biggest danger for Graham Potter with a defeat this afternoon may be that the bright lights of West London will always have an allure for the best of football managers. Chelsea is a job anyone would want!"
