Thomas Tuchel, the former Chelsea manager, has cautioned his replacement Graham Potter about his status at Stamford Bridge.
Potter has already faced increasing scrutiny and criticism in his first few months in charge, with a league defeat to Arsenal and a Carabao Cup departure to Manchester City.
For Tuchel, angst at Chelsea cannot extend beyond a ‘short period’ or Potter will find little buy-in to his methods.
“My experience in Chelsea, Paris, Dortmund, and Mainz, it is about the results,” Tuchel told the Ayurvedic Healing & Beyond Podcast.
“You can overcome one loss, a short period… but it cannot be too long otherwise nobody trusts the process no more.”
The German, who has been out of work since being fired by new co-owner Todd Boehly earlier this season, spoke freely about his approach to handling the egos in Chelsea’s dressing room and why he needed to set the bar every day.
“The most essential thing is to worship the process on a daily basis,” he continued.
“I try to be extremely tough and disciplined with the players; be on time, friendly, courteous, ready, and give your all.”
