Chelsea have sacked Graham Potter.
Potter, who spent less than seven months in charge of the English club was sacked in a statement on Sunday evening.
Potter’s dismissal came after Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat by Aston Villa.
It was his 11th defeat in 31 games since replacing Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge on September 8.
“Chelsea FC has announced that Graham Potter has departed the club. Graham has agreed to collaborate with the Club to facilitate a smooth transition,” the statement reads.
“In his time with the club, Graham has taken us to the quarter final of the Champions League, where we will face Real Madrid. Chelsea would like to thank Graham for all his efforts and contribution and wish him well for the future.”
The Blues are 11th in the Premier League table, 12 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
Former Brighton defender Bruno Saltor has been appointed as interim head coach, with his first game being a home game against Liverpool on Tuesday.
Chelsea, who have spent more than £550m on new players, are searching for their third manager of the season.
