Fire coach Graham Potter, Chelsea will likely lose a huge compensation fee when the British strategist still has more than 5 years of contract left.
Chelsea sack manager Graham Potter
On the morning of April 3, Vietnam time, Chelsea officially announced that Graham Potter was no longer the head coach of the team. The British strategist left Stamford Bridge after less than 7 months working here.
Coach Graham Potter left Chelsea with more than five years left on his contract. It is not clear how the two sides reached an agreement to end the contract before the deadline.
But as usual, when the team sacks the coach, it will have to pay a compensation fee equivalent to the salary for the rest of the contract. Coach Graham Potter’s five-year contract is worth more than £50 million.
Previously, Chelsea spent up to £ 21.5 million to liquidate the contract between coach Graham Potter and Brighton when inviting him to Stamford Bridge. Thus, Chelsea lost up to £ 71.5 million for the 47-year-old leader after less than 7 months of work.
When sacking coach Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea also had to spend 15 million pounds. When the 2022/23 season has not yet ended, the Blues have spent nearly 100 million pounds just for the coach position, an unbelievable number.
After Graham Potter’s departure, assistant Bruno Salto will temporarily lead Chelsea until the team finds a new coach. Currently, Julian Nagelsmann is the best candidate for the hot seat at Stamford Bridge.
