Chelsea left-back Marc Cucurella has urged Chelsea owner Todd Boehly to give Chelsea boss Graham Potter to turn things around at the club.
Chelsea lost four of our last five games under Potter before the World Cup break, leaving some questioning whether he is the right man for the job.
Cucurella, who played under Potter at Brighton last season, is convinced that the Englishman will turn things around, and has revealed that the players are treating the resumption of the Premier League as a fresh start.
“This is maybe another season. It is really good for us, the last games before the break we didn’t play too good or get results but this is a new season,” the defender told The Sun.
“We have to stay together, play good football and win games.
“I was really happy at Brighton with him and now he has come here and I think it is good for me and the rest of the team. He is a good coach because his idea of football is attacking.
“All of it is a process. The first season with Graham in Brighton the results were not good, they stayed down in the table.
“They continued with the same ideas, working, working and working. Then, last season and this season they played really good with the same ideas.
“We need to work and understand his ideas and the results will arrive.”
“After he arrived, it was difficult training because there are a lot of games,” Cucurella added.
“These weeks gave us time for training to prepare for the second half of the season. It is good training together because you understand the players and your team-mates’ movements.
“All the changes are difficult. We have a lot of players to come with a new manager, not a lot of training time because we play a lot of games.
“We need to know his ideas and then play together — these weeks have been very good for us.”
