He’s lost, frustrated under Potter – Micah Richards on Chelsea forward
Raheem Sterling, a forward for Manchester City, is allegedly lost and frustrated under Chelsea manager Graham Potter, according to former Manchester City defender Micah Richards.
After ending his seven-year tenure at Manchester City, Sterling completed a £50 million transfer to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
The England international's Chelsea career has gotten off to a slow start, with just five goals scored in 18 appearances across all competitions for Potter's team.
Sterling, however, is still figuring out how to play for Potter, according to Richards.
“I still rate Raheem very highly, but he looks a little lost,” Richards told BBC Sport.
“It’s like he is a bit frustrated in terms of Chelsea’s set-up and, tactically, does not know what they want him to do."
“Raheem joined another top club in Chelsea, and it looked like the perfect move for him. But then they changed their manager, and we have all seen the upheaval that has followed.
Richards added: “The whole team is still figuring out how they play under Potter, so Sterling is not the only one who has to work that out."
“Using him in different positions has not helped." "Ideally, I want to see him high and wide up the pitch, preferably on the left.”
