Cesc feels Potter deserved more time.
"I understand that the top, top teams nowadays panic very quickly," the Como midfielder told The Athletic.
"Like Chelsea, you are eighth and you make a change and now you are 14th. A panic change does not always guarantee you that you'll get better.
"Sometimes it does, sometimes not. But if you really believe – I believed in (former Chelsea manager Graham) Potter.
"I know the results weren't great but if you believe in him the way you say you believed in him… they had given him a five-year contract. Maybe give him some time. It's proven with other coaches that it worked."
