Graham Potter leaves Chelsea as the worst manager in the club’s history

After a shock home defeat to Aston Villa, Graham Potter was given the marching orders by Todd Boehly.

The former Brighton manager took over from Thomas Tuchel who was sacked in September 2022 after an abysmal run in the Premier League.

After just six months into the job, Graham Potter has been sacked as Chelsea’s Premier League struggle this season continues.

Now, it has been confirmed Graham Potter is leaving Chelsea as one of the least-performing managers in the history of the club.

Based on records, Graham Potter is tied with Glenn Hoodle on the bottom of the chart of managers with the least points per game.

Potter and Glen Hoodle are tied bottom on the 18-man chart with a point per game of 1.27 – a record so undeserving of Chelsea status.

Todd Boehly sank in a whooping £323m in the January transfer window bringing in new players and the best of young talents but Potter struggled to make the best out of the squad.

In his 6 months reign as Chelsea manager, Graham Potter took charge of 31 games in all competitions. He won 12 games, lost 13, and drew 6.

He has played 22 Premier League games, and has won only 7, drew 7, and lost 8.

Graham Potter is leaving Chelsea on the 11th position on the Premier League table far below where Thomas Tuchel was before he was sacked by Todd Boehly.

Thomas Tuchel fared better than Graham Potter on the Points Per Game ratings. Thomas Tuchel managed 1.94 PPG.

Thomas Tuchel won the Champions League with Chelsea a few months after taking over from Frank Lampard.

Graham Potter seems to have continued from where Thomas Tuchel stopped in the Champions League.

He led the team through the group stages of the competition and eliminated Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in round 16 to set up a quarterfinal clash with Real Madrid.

However, an inconsistent Premier League run that has ruled out the Blues from a top-four finish in the Premier League has made Potter unable to keep his job at Chelsea.

A list of high-profile managers have been earmarked for the Chelsea job. Leading the list is former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Olivier Glasner, and former PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino are also linked to the job, including Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea are off from the top-four (Champions League) race in the Premier League but can still return to the UCL next season if they can win the competition.

They will take on Real Madrid in the quarterfinals before facing either Manchester City or Bayern Munich in the semifinals.
