In the event that Chelsea fails to place in the top four of the Premier League, co-owner Todd Boehly will not fire manager Graham Potter.
Potter took over as Thomas Tuchel's replacement in September, but things have been rough for him with the Blues.
They fell to Manchester City 1-0 on Thursday night, and as a result, the club is now in tenth place, ten points off the top four.
After firing Tuchel, Boehly adopted a long-term strategy and offered Potter a five-year, £50 million contract.
The American believes Potter can create a winning team by developing the players at his disposal, coupled with financial investment, and will not sack him even if Chelsea finishes outside the top four.
Boehly’s approach would appear to be different from that of former owner Roman Abramovich, who employed 14 managers during his two-decade-long ownership.
