Graham Potter, formerly of Brighton, replaced Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea’s head coach last week on a five-year contract. Potter’s first game in command will be todays Champions League match against Red Bull Salzburg at Stamford Bridge.
After leaving Brighton for Stamford Bridge, Graham Potter claimed the chance was “too large to turn down” and he plans to make “his own history” at Chelsea.
Potter stated: “We were happy, secure and at a good club but the challenge was too big to turn down. It felt right for me.
“I’ll always be respectful and thankful for Brighton but this club is an amazing club. You only have to look at the tradition, quality, size, the ambition of the club to compete in the Champions League, to compete at the top of the Premier League. It’s a completely different challenge to the one I’ve had.
“I’m very thankful for the ownership here putting their trust and belief in me to work with an exciting group of players, to be competitive and to put a team on the pitch our supporters are really proud of.
“I’m very excited to get going.”
