On 2 April, following a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, Graham Potter was dismissed from his post, with Bruno Saltor taking over as Interim Head Coach. The former Brighton & Hove Albion manager had the lowest points-per-game return of any Chelsea manager. Potter managed 31 games for Chelsea, losing 11. The Blues were in 11th place in the Premier League, 12 points off the top four places at the time of his dismissal.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has sacked two managers this season.
Co-controlling owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali said: “On behalf of everyone at the club, we want to thank Graham sincerely for his contribution to Chelsea. We have the highest degree of respect for Graham as a coach and as a person. He has always conducted himself with professionalism and integrity and we are all disappointed in this outcome.”
“Along with our incredible fans, we will all be getting behind Bruno and the team as we focus on the rest of the season. We have 10 Premier League games remaining and a Champions League quarter-final ahead. We will put every effort and commitment into every one of those games so that we can end the season on a high.”
