Chelsea legend, Frank Leboeuf wants his former club under the leadership of Todd Boehly to sack manager Graham Potter and bring in a new coach if the Englishman fails to lead the Blues to beat Borussia Dortmund in their UEFA Champions League second-leg tie next month.
Leboeuf, who recently urged Boehly to sack Potter and replace him with former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, said now is not the right time to discharge the former Brighton coach.
Recall that Chelsea recently lost 1-0 against Dortmund in the Champions League last-16 first leg in Germany.
Potter’s side will host the Bundesliga giants in the return leg in March.
Chelsea currently sits in 10th position on the log after losing 1-0 against Southampton in their last Premier League tie on Saturday.
Speaking to Chelsea-news, Leboeuf said: “I completely understand the fans’ frustrations and being fed up right now with the situation. We all love the club, and we all want success.
“When you lose twice, with one being against the bottom of the league, it is a normal human reaction to get upset. Then asking for Graham Potter to be sacked, but I don’t think it is the right time.
“We have the second leg against Dortmund coming up, but I think if we lose that and go out of the Champions League, then it may be the time to get rid of Potter and think about bringing in another coach.”
