While Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is committed to making the team successful, the new manager may not be as concerned about missing out on the Champions League.



That marks a significant change from the reign of Roman Abramovich, the former owner of Chelsea, who developed a reputation for firing managers as soon as it became apparent they were having trouble finishing in the top four. To get the team back into the Champions League spots after a rocky start is still Potter's minimum goal for this season, but it won't make or break him as Chelsea's manager.

With a five-year deal worth more than £50 million, the new Chelsea administration has made it clear that they view Potter as a long-term hire.

They have faith in his ability to assemble a team, develop young players, and achieve long-term success in both the Premier League and Europe while also winning domestic championships.

Therefore, they are determined to move away from the “hire and fire" culture of Abramovich and, despite sacking Thomas Tuchel just 100 days after taking over, Boehly and fellow owner Behdad Eghbali have reassured Potter that he will be given time and support.

The likes of Jose Mourinho, Luiz Felipe Scolari, and Andre Villas Boas were all sacked as soon as it became clear that they may not reach the Champions League, and 14 different bosses served during Abramovich’s 20 years at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea currently sit sixth in the Premier League after a disappointing start to the campaign, while they also lost their opening game in the Champions League, losing 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb, which saw Tuchel sacked the following morning.

However, there is a belief that Potter can turn around the club’s fortunes quickly and improve results with plenty of time left to make changes, and they will not make panic decisions or judge him solely on whether he makes the top four.
