Potter defends Aubameyang, claiming ‘he’s done nothing wrong!

Aubameyang’s omission from the Champions League squad was not down to anything that the striker did, according to Chelsea boss Graham Potter

We reported earlier that

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang

was excluded from Chelsea’s Champions League squad. The striker has since flown to Milan with his family despite Chelsea having a match and drawing with Fulham tonight. However, Graham Potter insists that he can get back to the squad again.

"I don't think it's going to be difficult because Pierre is a professional. He was the one that missed out, he's done nothing wrong at all,"

Potter said the 0-0 draw with Fulham

. "We wanted to give David some time today. Whichever decision there was always going to be a debate. It was my decision, a tough decision.

"Nothing bad against him I understand his disappointment but I've got a responsibility to make these decisions and articulate them to the player. He handled it well and trained well today... Yes [he can fit in the system], everything is up for grabs and needs to train like today. Everything is up for grabs."

The Gabonese striker has scored only three goals since joining


at the start of the season and doesn’t seem to have a future with the Blues.
