[NEWS] Chelsea manager Potter took his players to the military barracks for team building
The head coach of London Chelsea Graham Potter decided to resort to non-standard methods to strengthen his team. On January 24, the specialist brought his players to a military base near the city of Liss in Hampshire, reports The Sun.
The barracks reportedly did not feature any rough stuff or hard exercises – instead, Potter decided to develop his footballers’ intelligence through a series of mental exercises to get them to think and work together.
Thus, the mentor wanted to use the pause in the championship to help the flow of new players quickly adapt to the club.
It is noted that during the work of Potter in the Swedish club “Östersund” (2011-2018), he forced his players to put on a ballet, write theatrical performances about the Vikings and perform folk rap songs in front of the public.
Chelsea, after 20 matches in the English Premier League (EPL), scored 29 points and is in tenth place in the championship standings.
Earlier, Spartak Moscow veteran Yevgeny Lovchev said that Chelsea paid a kickback to the Ukrainian Armed Forces by buying Ukrainian footballer Mikhail Mudryk.
