Former Chelsea star Joe Cole has revealed Graham Potter’s first job will be to get some kind of fluidity going in the squad after signings in January.
Cole told BT Sport: “Graham Potter’s first job will be to get some kind of fluidity going and get players up to speed with what he wants and on board with what’s expected and what he’s trying to do.
‘The players [who are on the bench] have got to be professional and they’ll have known before they came that there’d be huge challenges to make the team.
“Those players will have to take a lot of responsibility [for their futures] and if they’re not happy, there will be the opportunity to leave.
“In the next two windows there’ll be a big shift of players leaving as well but Chelsea have a strong group – with Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta, Reece James, Mason Mount – so they’ll make sure the principles remain and I think the squad can stay happy.”
