Chelsea boss Graham Potter thinks Felix can have a big impact now that he has served his suspension
Potter says that Joao Felix can make a difference for Chelsea, helping the out-of-form club come out of their rut.
Potter excited about Felix’s return
Chelsea will be facing West Ham on Saturday with loanee Felix possibly making a comeback.
“I think we all saw the impact he had in his hour before the red card,” Potter recalled of his debut. “You can see his quality, we see it every day.
“He’s a player that can make a difference for us. It’s about helping him to get integrated into the team, but the signs are really positive.”
Potter was then asked about whether he should be patient with the many players they signed, to which he replied: “It’s my job. When you’re coaching players, there is a process to go through and you have to understand the context.
“I’m not stupid, at the end of the day, if the results aren’t what this club should get, and if I’m the reason for it… then that’s the job.
“In the meantime, I have to go through the process of working with the players, helping them improve.
“It’s a complicated situation at the moment, but I’m really looking forward to the challenge that awaits us. I don’t worry about the absolute timescale of it all.”
“I’m not stupid, at the end of the day, if the results aren’t what this club should get, and if I’m the reason for it… then that’s the job.“
Meanwhile, Potter shed some light on Aubameyang’s situation.
“He’s been training with us this week, conducting himself well,” Potter added. “He has been supporting his team-mates and while he is here, he is doing exactly what I expect him to do.”
Potter, much like Klopp, refused to comment on the Manchester City case.
“I don’t know anything about it, we focus on ourselves. It’s something Manchester City have to deal with,” he said.
“As I understand it, they’re just charges. Certainly in this country, you’re innocent until you’re proven guilty, so it’s not for me to comment on it.”
