Graham Potter has received anonymous death threats.
The Chelsea boss has revealed that he and his family has both received death threats from unknown parties due to the club’s disappointing run of form.
The Blues have won only two of their last 14 matches across all competitions and are 10th in the Premier League table despite spending heavily in both transfer windows.
Potter opens up on his mental challenges since taking the Chelsea job in September last year.
“Pressure is a two way thing, isn’t it?” Potter said. “Four months ago was I under pressure? I don’t know. But obviously with the results the way they are now you accept it absolutely. It’s fascinating to see the process play itself out. I’ve sat here for four months answering questions about pressure. Do I have time? Have I spoken to the owners?
“The same every week. That’s just part of life at Chelsea. And then you have to accept the fact that when the results are like they are, you have to accept criticism. That should come and that’s fair. Your family life suffers, your mental life suffers, your personality … it’s hard. But you’re not really bothered, eh? It’s just how it is.”
