While it may not be obvious, many think that Potter-Chelsea’s move is ridiculous. Former Chelsea star, William Gallas adds his voice as he reveals the big problem Potter has caused at Chelsea after one game.
Like most people have opined, the club’s new boss, Graham Potter has already created a ‘problem’ with Raheem Sterling.
According to Gallas, the English coach made a mistake by playing Sterling out of position.
Potter was appointed as the new Blues manager a couple of weeks ago after the sacking of Thomas Tuchel and has only been in charge for one game.
The former Brighton boss was in charge of the 1-1 draw with Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League where he opted to play Sterling on the left flank.

And Gallas says he does not understand the manager’s thinking behind where to play Sterling.
“That is a problem. When I saw Sterling playing as left wing-back, I didn’t understand it,” Gallas told Genting Casino.
“It’s difficult for me to understand why he wants to experiment with something like this, especially in a Champions League game.
“You are playing at home and you put Cucurella as a center-back, you have Fofana on the bench with Koulibaly, Chalobah on the bench, and you put Sterling as a left-wing back? I don’t understand.
“In the end, they didn’t have a good result, they drew 1-1. People will always judge the result, and the question is why did he put those two players in those positions?”
