Graham Potter Issues A Warning To Chelsea Fans About Their Chances Of Winning The Champions League

Graham Potter has urged Chelsea to focus on overcoming Borussia Dortmund before talking about a trophy-less season..

The Blues travel to Germany this week for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter, a competition they last won in 2021.

Potter has cautioned his team to take their final European run game by game after three draws.

“In a knockout competition, anything may happen,” he explained. That’s the thing. It’s two games. I don’t think it’s worthwhile for us to look beyond Dortmund.

We are capable of defeating Dortmund, but they are also a powerful team capable of achieving a result.

We must accept this, go to Dortmund with humility and respect, and try to get a result.

Obviously, this is a difficult match against a high-quality opponent. But, at the same time, our team includes some talented players.

“[This squad] has won the Champions League,” he added. They’ve been through it. They’ll want to compete for the game, for sure, and that excites us.”

If Chelsea lose, they will face rumors of a trophyless season, with top-four qualification for next season’s Champions League seeming less likely by the week. Despite a thrilling two of transfer windows during which the Blues spent a world record ¬£600 million on 16 players..

Although those primarily younger players are expected to improve in the coming years, Potter admits that he needs to improve his team in the short term to prevent the season from slipping away.

“You can’t talk about the long term in this position because it doesn’t exist,” he added. “You have to recognize that there is a long term, but there is also a short and medium term that is tough for us in terms of results.

The veterans understand what we’ve been through. You’re talking about some elite football professionals. While others may have an opinion, these guys have been there and understand the difficulties we’ve experienced..
