In Summary

  • Potter took his whole squad to Bordon and Longmoor Military Camps in a bid to strengthen their moxie, determination.
  • Chelsea are position 10 on the table, 21 points behind league leaders Arsenal. 

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has turned to real warrior training for his players after he took them to military training camps in London.

Potter took his whole squad to Bordon and Longmoor Military Camps near the town of Liss in Hampshire in a bid to strengthen the team.

The English manager also used the opportunity to train the minds of his players with a series of mental exercises to get them 'thinking and working together'.

This is not the first time Potter has used off-the-pitch tactics to try and get the best from his players while encouraging team spirit.

During his stint as the manager of the Swedish side Ostersunds between 2011 and 2018, Potter had his players perform ballet, write a theatre show about Vikings and perform traditional Finnish rap songs in front of audiences.

The tactics saw the club promoted from the Fourth Division in the Swedish League to the First Division known as the Allsvenskan.

Under his tenure as the Chelsea manager, Potter has struggled to get the best from his squad winning only twice in the last ten matches in all competitions something that has left the club in the 10th position in the league.
