Professor of psychology believes Conte Saga will do even more harm to Chelsea than it seems
- A top-tier psychologist has claimed the ugly situation has been solved too late and will damage the players & staff a lot
- As per the scientist, this is a major fault from the board
Cary Cooper, professor of organizational psychology at Manchester University revealed: "Having uncertainty like that is not good. It should have been sorted professionally. It’s not a smart move by the club’s senior management.
"The players didn’t know who they were going to get. Will he stay? Can he stay? He’s probably leaving. All that uncertainty is not good for anything. Look at Brexit. People don’t know where they are and the same thing applies in this context. It’s not a smart way of doing it.
"Coaches in sport are really important people. People perform for them. They’re like a surrogate parent figure, like a father or mother who is encouraging you.
"A good coach, like a Sir Alex Ferguson, takes that role on and becomes the father figure for the whole team and when that person leaves, you’re almost homeless. That parent figure you valued, who nurtured you and who you wanted to please has gone and there is less motivation to perform."
