English Premier League (EPL) Chelsea defender Rhys James came out to defend coach Graham Porter, who was engulfed in hard rumors. James raised his voice, saying, “We are united as one,” and “everyone knows what a good director Porter is.”
Earlier, on the 26th of local time, Chelsea lost miserably 2-0 in the away game of the 25th round of the Premier League in the 2022-23 season against Tottenham Hotspur.
Chelsea put Kai Havertz at the forefront and placed Lime Sterling, Joao Felix and Hakim Ziyech in the back to try to break through the Tottenham goal. Chelsea overwhelmed Tottenham in almost every statistic, including shooting, shooting on target, ball possession, passing, and passing accuracy, but failed to score.
Ahead of this game, British media outlets observed that “If he loses this time, Coach Porter could really be hardened.” Director Porter had been in a state of crisis theory several times before that.
After narrowly winning 1-0 in the 20th Premier League match against Crystal Palace on the 15th of last month, Chelsea have not won a single match in all leagues.
On the 15th, they lost 1-0 in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League against Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga, and later lost 0-1 in the home game of the 24th round of the Premier League against Southampton. In the midst of this, there is a feeling of anxiety among fans as they recorded three consecutive losses against Tottenham.
On the other hand, the record of winning the Premier League six times is colorless, and it is difficult to get out of the middle of the league this season. They are currently in 10th place with 8 wins, 7 draws and 9 losses, with 31 points.안전놀이터
In the midst of this, according to the British media 90min on the 27th local time, James clearly revealed his faith in Porter in an interview with Qatari media Bein Sports.
“There is no question about Porter’s ability,” he said. “It’s not that we aren’t making an effort. We are doing our best, but in the current situation, the results are just not going our way.”
Porter took over as Chelsea manager in September last year. He has commanded 26 games in 172 days so far.
