‘39% win rate’ Porter fired from Chelsea after 7 months… 12 wins in 31 games
Chelsea have sacked manager Graham Porter after 7 months. After appointing manager Porter, the club tried to invest about 500 billion won to empower them, but it did not work out properly and was put in a position to find a new manager.
Chelsea of the English Premier League (EPL) announced on the club website on the 3rd (Korean time) that “Manager Porter is leaving the team. Coach Bruno Salter will temporarily take over as manager.”
As a result, Porter, who left Brighton & Hove Albion in September of last year to take charge of Chelsea, became unemployed after seven months.
In September of last year, Chelsea sacked coach Thomas Tuchel, who won the UEFA Champions League for the team in the 2020-21 season. Instead of him, manager Porter, who raised Brighton from the bottom of the EPL to the upper middle, was appointed. Chelsea paid Brighton £21.5 million (about 34 billion won) in compensation to bring Porter.
However, Porter failed to live up to the club’s expectations. Porter played 31 games for Chelsea in all competitions, winning just 12. The win rate is 39%.
In particular, it was more disappointing as it was reported that Chelsea spent a whopping 329.5 million euros (about 467 billion won) in January.
Chelsea are currently in 11th place in the EPL and were eliminated early in the FA Cup and EFL Cup.
The only tournament they can aim for is the UEFA Champions League, which reached the quarterfinals. However, Chelsea have to compete with the ‘defending champion’ Real Madrid (Spain) to advance to the semifinals. If they beat Real Madrid, they will face Bayern Munich (Germany)-Manchester City (England) winners in the semifinals. It is a match that is not easy to surpass the championship.
As coach Porter has been sacked, much attention is being paid to a new leader to replace him. The British BBC predicts that former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann is the most influential. In addition to Nagelsmann, former Spanish national team coach Luis Enrique and Sporting Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim are also being mentioned as candidates. 메이저사이트
Meanwhile, a total of 12 leaders have lost their seats in the EPL this season due to manager Porter’s resignation. After coach Scott Parker was the first to be sacked at Bournemouth in August of last year, former star players such as Tuchel, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Patrick Vieira were sacked.
At the end of the season, manager Antonio Conte said goodbye to Tottenham, and manager Brendan Rodgers also laid down the leadership of Leicester City.
