Boelli, who still believes in Potter, what is the real ‘inside’?
Owner Todd Boelli still believes in manager Graham Porter. What is the real meaning?
Chelsea lost 0-2 to Tottenham Hotspur in the 25th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 10:30 pm (Korean time) on the 26th. As a result, Chelsea failed to win six matches in a row in the league and failed to rise in the rankings.
Victory was desperate.토토사이트 Chelsea are going through a darker period than ever this season. They are in 10th place, their worst position since the 2015-16 season, and their recent performance is worse than the relegation zone. Starting with the loss against Brighton in October of last year, they won only 3 wins in 16 official games, and before this match, they were in a swamp without a win in 5 consecutive official matches. Fans and officials’ trust in Porter was gradually waning.
A ‘rival match’ that took place under such circumstances. Director Porter couldn’t back down any longer. From the beginning of the first half, Tottenham pressed through strong pressure. It was ahead in most offensive indicators, such as shooting, possession, and pass success rate. All I had to do was score a goal. However, the ‘scoring’ came first from Tottenham. With the start of the second half, Oliver Skip conceded a run and allowed the lead. Coach Porter, who was in a hurry, sought change through player replacement. However, in the 37th minute of the second half, Harry Kane gave up an extra run and lost 0-2.
There was no excuse. It wouldn’t be strange if he was hardened right now. However, the owner of Boelli showed his continued trust in Porter. Ben Jacobs of ‘CBS Sports’ said, “Chelsea’s executives still have patience and trust in Porter. They have no plans to sack Porter just yet.”
Only 3 wins in 17 official matches. Still, Director Porter’s position remains the same. It’s a picture unfamiliar to many football fans, let alone Chelsea fans. It’s because it’s different from Chelsea’s move that has been maintained until now.
Since being taken over by owner Roman Abramovich, Chelsea have been known for changing managers quickly. The manager who held the baton the longest was Jose Mourinho, who was also sacked once in the middle. In addition, many other great generals such as Rafael Benitez, Carlo Ancelotti, Antonio Conte, and Thomas Tuchel failed to hold power for a long time. Because of this, it was pointed out that Chelsea lacks ‘patience’ for the manager.
Of course, it hasn’t been long since Porter took the helm. If he resigns now, his tenure will be five months. No other manager in Chelsea history, other than an interim manager, has managed a team shorter than this. Luis Scolari about 7 months. Andre Villas-Boas is about 8 months old. Still, there is plenty of reason to sack Porter. This is because there is no ‘formal manager’ in Chelsea history who has a win rate of 30% or so. In light of his previous moves, director Porter should have been hardened a long time ago.
Still, why does the owner of Boelli believe in him? Is it really because of pure ‘trust’? It doesn’t look that way.
After the takeover, the owner of Boelli wanted to change the team to his liking. In response, it fired high-ranking officials, including director Marina Granovskaia, Bruce Buck and Petr Cech. The team composition was also changed. During the summer and winter transfer markets alone, they invested more than 800 billion won to recruit dozens of players. It appeared to be an effort to erase the traces of Abramovich.
He was like that when he sacked Tuhel. If the owner of Boeli is a person who has a lot of trust in the manager, he should have given time to Tuhel.
In the first half, which was criticized for being sluggish, Tuchel’s performance was 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. Coach Porter’s recent 7 match results are 1 win, 3 draws and 3 losses. There is no comparison. Nevertheless, Chelsea did not hesitate to cut Tuhel. And within a day, Director Porter was appointed. Already, the owner of Boelli did not care about Tuchel.
Manager Porter is the ‘first’ official manager in the Boelli owner system. This part is important. From Boelli’s point of view, he doesn’t want the first manager he picks to end up as a ‘failure’. It is because he has to achieve good grades somehow so that he has a ‘justification’ in running the club. In the end, Boelli’s owner was put in a situation where he had to ‘trust’ Porter for his own future and interests.
