Wright-Phillips warns Potter about Chelsea star who’ll cause problems after Tuchel’s sack
Former Chelsea star, Shaun Wright-Phillips, has warned the club’s new coach, Graham Potter, that striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a ‘maverick’ and could cause problems at Stamford Bridge following Thomas Tuchel’s sack.
Aubameyang, who worked with Tuchel during their time at Dortmund, signed a two-year deal with Chelsea this summer, which includes the option of a further year.
However, Wright-Phillips believes Tuchel’s departure could have a disruptive effect on Aubameyang.
Speaking to Fair Betting Sites, Shaun Wright-Phillips said: “Well, I don’t think Aubameyang will regret the move because he’s tried to sign in for a massive club in Chelsea, great club, great fans, and he’s back in the Premier League again and he’s playing Champions League football as well.
“So I don’t think he’ll complain too much. “I think what will maybe the struggle or the thing that they both have to get used to is when the new manager comes in, is he going to be like, is he going to allow him to be a Maverick or is he going to him strict, which doesn’t seem to work for Aubameyang.
“He seems to like to do what Aubameyang likes to do. I think the next manager that comes in is you cannot say you are leaning with him, but as long as he works hard for the team and he scores you those goals, you got to give him a little bit of a yardage in a way, because it’s hard to change your character.”
