‘He is as good as you can be’: Chelsea boss Graham Potter insists Raheem Sterling is OK after his house was burgled while he was away at the World Cup with England… as the Blues close in on a £35m move for Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile

  • Chelsea return to Premier League action when hosting Bournemouth on Tuesday
  • Graham Potter said Raheem Sterling was doing OK after the break-in at his home
  • He also hinted that there is still more to come from the forward at Chelsea
  • The Blues are also continuing to pursue Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile 

Graham Potter says Raheem Sterling is ‘as good as you can be’ following the trauma of being burgled while he was at the World Cup.

The Chelsea forward missed England’s win over Senegal after jetting back to be with his family.

‘He is good — as good as you can be,’ said manager Potter. ‘There is nothing we can do now other than make sure he is as secure as possible.’

Sterling is expected to feature in Tuesday’s Premier League match at home to Bournemouth and Potter said the player enjoyed his Qatar experience. ‘He was positive about it but he has come back focused on the game and knowing we can all do a little bit better,’ said Potter.

Chelsea have lost their last three league matches to drop out of the qualification slots for Europe, while Sterling has scored just five goals this season.

‘It would be wrong to say that Raheem has been at the absolute top of his game but he is not the only one,’ added Potter. ‘It is my responsibility to help the team function better so he can play better.’

Potter has also had to help Reece James, who missed out on a place in the England squad because of injury.

‘It was a challenging period for him,’ Potter said of the right back, who will be in Tuesday’s squad. ‘But you have to focus on the things you can control.’

Chelsea are continuing negotiations with Monaco over a £35million move for defender Benoit Badiashile.

The 21-year-old left-sided centre back can fit into a three or four-man defence and would give Potter more tactical flexibility.

Newcastle have made Chelsea midfielder Jorginho their prime target for the January window as his talks over a new deal stall. The 31-year-old Italy international is out of contract in the summer.

Newcastle have also discussed Leicester’s Youri Tielemans and Nice’s Khephren Thuram, the brother of France forward Marcus and son of legendary defender Lilian.
