“I’m not saying anybody criticising me is stupid at all, but you get my point. It’s hard to take anything from it. At the same time, it’s part of the job, there’s always a point to it as well and you want to get a sense of where people are, especially when you’re in a foreign country. But it’s hard.
After a half-decent start to life at Chelsea, it has been all downhill since then. Since beating RB Salzburg on October 25, Chelsea’s form in all competitions has read: played nine, won two, lost six and drawn one. Poor by almost any club’s standards. The Chelsea fans seemed to let their feelings be known in recent games, with chants for former manager Thomas Tuchel and former owner Roman Abramovich.
Asked whether he had a message for any Chelsea fans planning to once again chant their names, Potter said: “I understand it when we’re not getting the results we want to get.
“I have the utmost respect for Thomas Tuchel, and what he achieved here in terms of winning the Champions League. And as I said before, what the previous ownership has done before is fantastic, what they have achieved, again I have the utmost respect.
“After you’ve lost a game, it’s really hard logically to process things, there’s just too much pain and the only way to get rid of the pain is to blame somebody else or blame something and that’s the head coach’s responsibility.”
