Chelsea interim head coach Bruno Saltor has said it had been a “difficult” 24
hours following Graham Potter’s sacking which will have left the players “sad” – and
suggested he intends to continue the work of his former boss during his tenure.
Potter was dismissed on Sunday after a 2-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa saw
Chelsea slide into the bottom half of the Premier League table, despite their record-
breaking transfer outlay this season.
According to Chelsea, Potter ‘has agreed to collaborate with the club to facilitate a
smooth transition’ and former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann has already
emerged as a frontrunner to be his long-term successor.
