Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has warned new Chelsea boss Graham Potter that he may have inherited a dressing room full of problems.

Robbie Fowler believes Potter would be able to handle the tactical side of the game, but his biggest worry is whether Potter would be able to handle the big egos at Chelsea.

Fowler told the Daily Mirror: “The dressing room looks a mess as well. Maybe that’s Tuchel’s fault, maybe not.

“There are a lot of big egos in there, and some of them seem to be butting up against each other.

“I didn’t like the body language of that free-kick exchange between Reece James and Hakim Ziyech, which spoke volumes on the issues Potter will be inheriting.

“I’ve already heard questions about whether he’ll be able to handle those big egos, and win over players who seem to have the power at that club to get managers sacked.

“He’s shown at Brighton he can improve players massively, and he’s also shown he knows the game, has refreshing ideas and is astute technically and tactically.

“How does he deal with a split dressing room though? The answer is to go in there without preconceptions.”
