Under-fire Graham Potter insists speculations won’t affect his focus
Potter took the reign from Tuchel earlier this season with Todd Boehly finding the English coach's best option to turn things around at Stamford Bridge. However, with only two wins in their last 15 matches, Chelsea fans are asking for him to be sacked on social media.
Winning only nine of their last 27 games, the Blues suffered another loss at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday, piling pressure on Graham Potter. Ahead of the Blues' Premier League clash with Leeds United, Potter insists the speculations won't affect his focus.
Asked if the owners support him, Potter said: "
There is support and I've spoken to them. But I'm not going to hide behind that. The results haven't been good enough.
"My position is that I need to focus on the next game. Whatever the discussions are, that's not for me."
On the speculations over his job, the English coach said:
"By not listening too much to it is the honest answer. I take it step by step, focus on the next thing. You get through the days and the week.
"We're fighting for improvement. Talking is one thing, we have to do it on the pitch.
"Supporters care and how that comes out is understandable. They're hurting and we are too. We thank them for their support – and when you lose to the team that are bottom you expect a negative response.
"We've not given them enough to give them a reason to be excited about the team."
