Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, has described managing the London club as “probably the hardest job in football”.
Potter, however, said he was not looking for sympathy as he tries to salvage the English football club’s season amid an injury crisis and after a summer of radical change across all areas of the club.
He said expectations have remained high at Stamford Bridge in spite of a change in ownership in May.
That was when a consortium headed by Todd Boehly completed a 4.25 billion pounds (5.17 billion dollars) take-over and restructured the club.
Chelsea have dropped to 10th in the English Premier League (EPL) after winning only one of their last eight games.
They have also been knocked out of both the FA Cup and League Cup, with last year’s expensive transfer intake largely struggling to make an impact.
“It is a challenge, stimulating and ridiculously hard. I think it is probably the hardest job in football because of that leadership change and the expectations because of, rightly, where people see Chelsea,” Potter said
