Former Aston Villa star, Gabriel Agbonlahor has asked Chelsea to sack Graham Potter over his post-match comment after Chelsea’s shock 1-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday, February 18.
Chelsea’s inability to get a win in the match has left them languishing in 10th place, with 10 points adrift from the Premier League top four.
Potter who spoke to reporters after the match, said they were forced to make changes after their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
“You have to see it for what it is. We had to make some changes because of the Champions League.
“We’ve had to make some changes because of the situation we’re in and boys coming back from injury.
When you make those changes, it can be difficult against a team that is well prepared.”
Agbonlahor however accused Potter of only “complaining.” He told talkSPORT;
“He should be sacked for that post-match interview.
“What are you talking about? They haven’t got a manager, you’re playing a team in disarray who can’t get back-to-back wins together.
“You’re complaining that you’ve had to bring Mykhailo Mudryk off the bench and start Joao Felix? Are you joking me?
“Poor Graham! Poor you, Graham… Wow… I think as well… There is an English bias.”
😳 JO’H: “Graham Potter- is he winding me up?! This is Chelsea Football Club!”
👀 GA: “He should be sacked for that post-match interview!”
