Manager Graham Potter has been officially sacked by Chelsea Football Club, confirming weeks of speculation.
Despite spending heavily on new players like Enzo Fernandez, the team’s form had been abysmal since Potter took over in September 2022.
With 10 losses already this season, Chelsea currently sits in 11th place in the league, and it appears that the final straw for the Blues board was their most recent defeat to Aston Villa.
Following Potter’s sack, fans took to social media to celebrate, while others began to speculate on who the new manager will be.
Here are some reactions to Graham Potter’s sack
Graham Potter reminds me of Ole, seems like a genuinely great guy but the job was too big for him, arguably the worst manager we’ve had in over 20 years.

@frankedoho Potter gave me high blood pressure! The Doctor took the reading and said, “its rather high. Everything okay at home?”. I said no. Where’s your home he asked? Stamford Bridge, I replied. He fell off his chair quaking in laughter.
@elkrosmediahub Chelsea better not go and hire Julian Nagelsmann. Frying pan to fire.
@Tunnykvng Graham Potter, the worst manager I’ve seen in my 50 years of supporting this great club.
This Graham Potter sacking that brought so much joy to Chelsea fans just reminds me of the joy Alex Otti’s victory brought to Abia State indigenous.
When you're poor at your job, people will rejoice at your sacking, it's that simple.

@SeunMobolaji It’s a shame. Potter had difficulties I’ve not seen many managers have even in the Chelsea job. Injuries, Massive squad. Already had enemies before he came because of fans were hurting from Tuchel. It seems the challenge was too massive understandably for him.

@timmieobafemi Now that Graham Potter is gone if you ask me how was my weekend I can smile and give good response now
@BiolaKazeem I like Potter but I found his behaviour at Chelsea very strange. You’re at a big club where you have no history & you’re not a big name manager yet even through a terrible run of form,you act as if results don’t matter & remain so aloof & detached. People have to FEEL you care.
The big winners in this whole Graham Potter to Chelsea and out thing is….Brighton and Hove Albion. They banked millions in compensation and hired Roberto de Zerbi. That Chelsea money will probably pay de Zerbi’s salary for two years..All chicken change to Boehly anyway

@Usenboss Finally ohhhhhhhhh!! Graham Potter is out..
@UTDTrey Chelsea paid Brighton £20m for Potter and then paid him £250k a week, he sent them down to 11th and now he’s sacked with a big compensation. He owns those bums
