'No': Gary Neville thinks there's no chance that Todd Boehly would appoint 53-year-old as Chelsea manager now
Results have been mixed to say the best for the current Blues manager, after what was originally nine games unbeaten when he took over the club.
Things haven’t been much better in the attacking line. Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic are expected to be sidelined for a while now.
This perhaps explains why all the reports have claimed that the owners at Chelsea are firmly behind Potter, despite the dire form.
Nevertheless, the rumour mill has linked some managers to the hotseat at Stamford Bridge.
Neville says Boehly wont hire Conte
Neville however has claimed that there’s no chance the owner would look to former manager Conte as a replacement for Potter.
He said: “Barcelona and Real Madrid are they going to have him? No. Bayern Munich going to have him? No. Are Liverpool or Chelsea or Manchester United going to have him? No. He’s at the best club he could possibly be at this moment in time!”
The former Brighton man will be hoping the upcoming break will give him plenty of time to work with his squad on improvements before they face Fulham in ten days’ time.
He will have the opportunity to bed in some of his new signings, with the next game not being played until after the transfer window is closed.
While Joao Felix will not be available due to suspension, the likes of Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke will be pushing for a start in the West London derby.
