Eagle-eyed Chelsea fans notice problem with picture Mason Mount posted to thank Graham Potter after sacking | The Sun

CHELSEA fans have spotted a problem with Mason Mount's post to Graham Potter after he was sacked.

The Blues sacked Potter, 47, following the defeat to Aston Villa on the weekend.

Supporters realised that the picture Mount, 24, used was from before Potter was the Chelsea manager.

In fact, the snap was from last season's 1-1 draw against Brighton at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League.

Mount has only played 63 per cent of the available minutes in the Premier League this season.

Many fans spotted the gaff with the suggestion that Mount could not find a photo from this season because of his reduced game time.

One fan tweeted: "Mason Mount thanks Graham Potter. It’s been that long of a season, the picture used was when he coached Brighton."

A second supporter commented: "Bro had to search 'Mount and Potter' on Google to get the pic."

A third wrote: "The most half-assed best of luck I've ever seen from a player."

A fourth said: "There are actually quite many from Potter's time at Chelsea together with Mount, strange he picked one from last season."

While a fifth added: "That's why it took him so long to say goodbye because of searching for his pictures with him."

Leicester City has already approached Potter to replace axed boss Brendan Rodgers.

However, the Englishman turned down the offer as he plans to wait until the summer before making his decision about his future.

Chelsea, in the meantime, are on the search for their next manager.

The club has been linked with former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann and Spain coach Luis Enrique.
