Tuchel warns Potter: Chelsea players and management will begin distrusting you

Thomas Tuchel has warned Chelsea successor Graham Potter over his position.

Potter has come in for increasing scrutiny and criticism already, just months into the job, with defeat to Arsenal in the league followed up by a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Manchester City.

For Tuchel, angst at Chelsea cannot extend beyond a ‘short period’ or Potter will find little buy-in to his methods.

“My experience in Chelsea, Paris, Dortmund and Mainz, it is about the results,” Tuchel told the Ayurvedic Healing & Beyond Podcast.

“You can overcome one loss, a short period… but it cannot be too long otherwise nobody trusts the process no more.”

The German, currently out of work since being sacked earlier this season by new co-owner Todd Boehly, spoke openly about his approach to managing the egos in Chelsea’s dressing room and why he needed to set the standard each day.

“To worship the process on a daily process this is the most important,” he added.

“I try to be really strict and disciplined with the players, be on time, be friendly, be respectful, be ready, give your very best.”
