Brentford manager Thomas Frank has explained why Graham Potter has struggled at Chelsea.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Monday Night Club, Frank said: “First and foremost, he’s a very good man.
“Secondly, he’s a very good coach and it’s proven that he can do a good job. A good coach can work at every club.
“This is not against Chelsea. It’s just that sometimes the circumstances create an environment where it’s difficult to get everything to just click.
“There’s a lot of new players, the team isn’t in sync, trying to find the right balance of players. A lot of players have been in and out [of the team]. Graham is searching for a solution and I’m convinced that, over time, he will find that solution.
“If I were to give advice then it’d be ‘trust himself’ because he’s more than capable of turning this around – trust himself and the guiding principles that have made him very successful and gave him the opportunity to be the Chelsea manager.”
