Former Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel has warned his successor Graham Potter that ‘nobody’ at the club will ‘trust the process’ if he cannot turn things around following back-to-back defeats.
Potter has faced increasing scrutiny and criticism already, just months into the job following defeat to Arsenal in the league followed up by a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Manchester City.
‘My experience in Chelsea, Paris, Dortmund and Mainz, it is about the results,’ Tuchel told the Ayurvedic Healing & Beyond Podcast.
‘You can overcome one loss, a short period… but it cannot be too long otherwise nobody trusts the process no more.’
The German, currently out of work since being sacked earlier this season by new co-owner Todd Boehly, spoke openly about his approach to managing the egos in Chelsea’s dressing room and why he needed to set the standard each day.
‘I try to be really strict and disciplined with the players, be on time, be friendly, be respectful, be ready, give your very best.’
Chelsea have now lost three of their last four matches, successive league defeats by Brighton and Arsenal before losing the cup clash at the Etihad to Manchester City.
