Chelsea co-owner Todd Boyle will not sack manager Graham Potter if the team finish outside the top four in the Premier League.
Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel in September but has had a difficult period in charge of the Blues.
On Thursday evening, they lost 1-0 to Manchester City, a result that leaves the club in 10th place, ten points off the top four.
Boehly took a long-term view after sacking Tuchel, and gave Potter a five-year, £50m deal.
The American believes Potter can create a winning team by developing the players at his disposal, along with the financial investment, and won’t knock him out even if Chelsea finish outside the top four.
Bohle’s approach may look different from that of former boss Roman Abramovich, who employed 14 managers during his two-decade tenure.
