It is reported a number of Chelsea players were calling the former Brighton manager “Harry” and “Hogwarts”, after his wizarding namesake.

The 47-year-old manager was said to have left out Trevoh Chalonah for Saturday’s defeat against Aston Villa, despite having lengthy discussions with the defender about his role in the game.

There was also reportedly bemusement around the handling of Hakim Ziyech.

The Moroccan international wanted to leave Stamford Bridge in January due to a lack of game time, but was then back in the starting XI after the World Cup.

Potter was sacked after just seven months in charge of the Blues despite massive backing from the owner Todd Boehly in the January transfer window.

The London club spent £330million after the World Cup giving them a hugely inflated squad.

It has even been claimed that the increased squad size even forced a number of players to have to change in the corridor as there was not enough space in the dressing room.

Chelsea remain in the bottom half of the Premier League table as they search for a new manager for the remainder of the season.


They played out a soulless 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Tuesday night and will face Wolves away on Saturday.

Despite their terrible league form they are still in with a chance of silverware with a Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid on the horizon.
