“I can’t use my hands”… 900 billion won + 8 recruitment ‘criticism’￼
Reckless investment has become rather poison.
Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton said on the 21st (Korean time) through the British media ‘BBC’, “Coach Graham Porter is faced with an unavoidable situation because of an overly inflated squad. There are too many players to handle.”
Chelsea made aggressive investments after taking over chairman Todd Boelli. He emerged as the biggest player in the transfer market. After the surprise sacking of manager Thomas Tuchel (49), Chairman Boelli gave full support to manager Porter. 메이저놀이터
During the season, in the winter transfer market alone, eight players were recruited. According to the ‘BBC’, the transfer fee is a whopping 583 million pounds (approximately 900 billion won). SL Benfica newcomer Enzo Fernandez (22) even brought the English Premier League (PL) highest transfer fee (105 million pounds). He boldly spent 100 million euros to win the match between Arsenal and Mihailo Mudrik (21). I tried to put the team struggling in the middle ranks back on the right track.
However, despite the huge investment, Chelsea could not escape from sluggishness. In 4 matches in February, they recorded 2 draws and 2 losses. In the official 14 games that have been since last November, they have only won 2 wins. In particular, the attack power is the worst level ever. They have scored just 4 points in their last 10 games. The Premier League position plummeted to 10th.
Sutton said of Chelsea’s current situation, “There are too many players. It is difficult for the manager to handle. The starting lineup has become uncertain. It is difficult to produce consistent results in a situation where the team has changed rapidly.”
The atmosphere in the arena is also disturbing. Chelsea lost the match against Southampton at the bottom of the Premier League on the 19th. After the game, home fans booed Porter.
However, according to the ‘BBC’, Chelsea executives still support Porter. He has four and a half years left on his contract. Sutton agreed. “Porter had so much to deal with,” he added. “It’s positive that Boelli is supporting him long term.”
