Chelsea manager Graham Potter says he has received death threats from anonymous people.
The former Brighton and Hove Albion boss has faced a lot of criticism for the club’s poor performances and results.
According to the Daily Star, Chelsea have only recorded two victories in their last 14 matches in all competitions.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference to preview Chelsea’s clash against Tottenham Hotspur, Potter said:
As much as I’ve had support, I’ve had some not particularly nice emails come through that want me to die and want my kids to die.
So that’s obviously not pleasant to receive.
You have got to take the situation for what it is, take the criticism, but don’t get drawn into stuff that is incorrect.
Try to have perspective but at the same time acknowledge the criticism and bad feeling. That’s how it should be.
It’s a challenge and if you go to work and somebody is swearing abuse at you it’s not going to be pleasant.
Meanwhile, Potter reportedly has the firm support and backing of Chelsea owner Todd Boehly and other stakeholders.
