Chelsea manager, Graham Potter says he is “proud” of his players for their performance during a 1-1 draw with Red Bull Salzburg in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) on Wednesday.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Chelsea were on course for their first win in the UCL this season thanks to Raheem Sterling’s goal in a generally positive performance, but a defensive lapse in the 75th minute allowed Salzburg to pull the game back level following a period of pressure, snatching a point in the process.
Potter spoke after Chelsea stuttered to a 1-1 draw against Salzburg in his first game in charge since taking over from Thomas Tuchel, with Sterling’s opener cancelled out by Noah Okafor.
Addressing the performance, the new Chelsea trainer praised his players.
“The players gave everything,” he told reporters. “I was proud with how they acted, it’s not been easy with a change of coach and everything that comes with that but their response has been brilliant. From an effort perspective, it was 100% there.”
