Graham Potter, Chelsea manager, has claimed that the “most difficult team in the world of football is Chelsea”.
The Blues play Fulham away in the Premier League on Thursday night.
Chelsea are currently in 10th place in the table, having suffered six defeats in nine games.
Potter will succeed Thomas Tuchel in September 2022, following the departures of Marina Granovskaia, Petr Cech, Bruce Buck, Guy Laurence, and Scott McLachlan.
“I knew it was going to be tough. From a leadership standpoint, I think it’s fascinating, challenging, stimulating, and ridiculously difficult.
“I believe this is probably the most difficult job in football because of the leadership change, the expectations, and the location.”

“And obviously, I didn’t anticipate losing 10 first-team players to injury,” he concluded.
