Chelsea has found a new captain for her drifting ship! While the Blues ended a sad Premier League season with a 12th place in the Premier League and an elimination in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, the English club’s XXL winter recruitment did not make it possible to rectify the situation. Worse, the London leaders have spent more than 600 million euros since last summer and the arrival of new owner Todd Boehly, registering no less than 16 new players. Without the expected results.

Arrived against 25 million euros, Graham Potter will not have succeeded in restarting the machine and will have paid the price for the disappointing results of the Blues since the start of the season (17 wins, 9 draws and 12 defeats in all competitions). Despite the means made available to the former Chelsea coach, even the last transfer window seemed chaotic with the arrival of many high-potential players without much consistency, the London club is still sick. The London leaders have therefore decided to separate from the English technician before appointing Frank Lampard as an interim. No more success.
