There is no change in the club’s position.
The British media ‘Mirror’ reported on the 20th (Korean time), “Chelsea chairman Todd Boelli’s thoughts remain unchanged. We will continue to support manager Graham Porter.”
fell into the worst recession of all time. After the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Chelsea won only two English Premier League (PL) matches. 10th place with 8 wins, 7 draws, 8 losses and 31 points in 23 matches in the English Premier League in the 2022-23 season. Far from advancing to the European competition, they are struggling in the mid-table.
Even the home fans were furious. Chelsea lost 0-1 in a Premier League match against Southampton held at Stamford Bridge in London on the 19th. Chelsea fans booed Porter after the match after losing to Southampton, the lowest place in the world, whose manager was recently sacked.
Aggressive investment is colorless. Chelsea made a huge investment under the direction of Chairman Boelli. More than 600 million pounds (approximately 936 billion won) were poured into the winter transfer market. Benfica broke the record for the highest transfer fee in the Premier League by spending 105 million pounds just to recruit new midfielder Enzo Fernandez (22). He also bet 100 million euros to win the match between Arsenal and Mihailo Mudrik (21). However, Chelsea only recorded 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 5 official matches. 메이저사이트
Still, the president’s faith was not broken. Boelli boldly sacked manager Thomas Tuchel (49) after taking office as Chelsea chairman. According to multiple media reports such as ‘BBC’, it is known that the communication problem touched the planting of Chairman Boelli. Since then, Chelsea have been struggling under the Porter managerial system, which was dropped by Chairman Boelli. However, according to the ‘Mirror’, Boelli promised full support during the remainder of Porter’s contract.
The coach also promised the team a rebound. “Sometimes things don’t go your way,” said Porter. “Some people may think I’m the problem. But I don’t think they’re right. I’m just going to work for the team in the tough times.”
Chelsea, somewhat depressed, will leave the Premier League away for a match against Tottenham Hotspur on the 26th. On the 8th of next month, we will face Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League. In the first leg, they lost 0-1.
