It has been reported that Chelsea is considering signing Brentford manager Thomas Frank in the event that Graham Potter is fired from his position at Stamford Bridge.
It has been reported that Chelsea is looking into the possibility of hiring Thomas Frank, the manager of Brentford, in the event that Graham Potter is dismissed from his role at Stamford Bridge.
A report that was released on Monday claimed that Potter’s job may be in risk despite the fact that Chelsea are presently ninth in the Premier League standings. This is despite the fact that the club has spent almost £600 million on new players since the conclusion of the previous season.
It was reported that the former manager of Brighton only had two games left to win in order to keep his job, and those games would take place at home against Leeds and Borussia Dortmund.
The Guardian later debunked this allegation, and it was stated that Chelsea’s owners, Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital, still intend to give Potter some time to turn things around despite the recent poor performance of the team. This was in response to an earlier allegation that The Guardian had published.
“their ambition from early in this poor sequence of results has been to give Potter next summer to benefit from a pre-season, a recalibration of the squad, and the addition of the forward Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig,” despite the fact that they are aware of the difficulty of adding so many new players to the squad. This indicates that they have the intention of providing Potter with the chance to gain from each of these opportunities.
It has also been said that they “like the peaceful manner Potter is going about his job,” and that they do not want to rip up their blueprint after having erected a structure around him because they “love the quiet way Potter is going about his job.”
Nonetheless, Football Insider reports that Frank is being viewed as “a preferred contingency option” and is now the leading candidate to take over as the club’s manager. This is despite the fact that Frank is not currently the manager of the team.
The board at Stamford Bridge reportedly acknowledges Frank’s “playing style, interaction with the media, and track record of turning young players into Premier League stars” as positives, as stated in the report. In addition to this, the report asserts that Frank has a “track record of growing young players into Premier League stars.”
Frank renewed his membership with the club and extended his contract in December of the previous year, which will keep him there until the year 2027.
His Brentford side are currently tenth in the Premier League, four points ahead of Chelsea, who had only won two of their previous 15 games in the Premier League.
Their first season in the Premier League was the one before last, and despite having one of the smallest budgets in the top flight, they are performing incredibly well relative to their position. Their debut season in the Premier League was the one before last.
Potter’s position at Chelsea is safe for the time being despite the fact that he disclosed on Friday that he had received emails hoping that he and his children would die. This is because the owners of Chelsea continue to back him. Nonetheless, the Chelsea supporters have shown that they have less patience than the club’s owners, which is a behavior that should not be tolerated.
