Pundit suggests Chelsea making more 'big signings' amid 'unbelievable' Graham Potter claim

Graham Potter may be regretting taking the Chelsea job after a poor start to his tenure.

That’s according to former Hibernian striker Tam McManus, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Englishman’s move.

Potter, 47, joined Chelsea from Brighton in early September following Thomas Tuchel’s dismissal.

Ahead of Saturday’s (12 November) game against Newcastle United, from his 13 games in charge, Potter had managed seven wins.

This comes after a summer of heavy spending following Todd Boehly’s takeover, albeit a summer during which Potter was still at Brighton.

McManus claims Potter may wish he had turned down the job.

“He’s not finding it easy, is he?” McManus told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild.

“It’s a big old job and there is a lot of uncertainty at Chelsea at the moment. The owner is making a lot of big decisions, signing a lot of players.

“Potter had it made at Brighton, he had a squad that had been built by him and they were playing unbelievable football.

“They are still doing it under their new manager, who is continuing to do an excellent job. Chelsea look lost at the back.

“I know he has only been there a few weeks but some of the results have been so poor. Surely there is a part of him that thinks he might have made a mistake.”

Potter managed Brighton between May 2019 and September 2022.

He has also managed Swansea City and Ostersund.
