Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, feels that the anonymous abuse he and his family have received as a result of the club’s recent poor performance has affected his mental health.


The Blues have won just 2 of their last 14 games. That loss was extended last week when they lost to Premier League strugglers, Southampton.


The club has stated that they will offer full support to Porter and his family. Chelsea Supporters’ Trust says they will support all investigations.


Potter admitted, “I’ve received some terrible emails wishing for my death.” As anyone can tell you, “It is certainly not what you want to hear.”


Graham Potter has only won nine of 25 games since he left Brighton for Chelsea. He also claimed that his family was also referenced in the emails.


Chelsea has declared that they are happy to assist Potter and his family in any manner possible.


Potter said that his fans were “entitled to be furious” at the recent results, but he would not be deterred by the criticism.


The Blues have played one more game than the top nine clubs and are currently 10th in the league, 11 points behind Tottenham in fourth place.


The Chelsea Supporters Trust has condemned the act, stating that they do not represent Chelsea FC fans.


“We are really saddened that a manager and his or her family were affected by this tragedy.


It is anticipated that players and coaches will participate in constructive discussion and criticism of one another’s performances and plans. It is never appropriate for such conversations to devolve into abuse of teammates or their families.
