Chelsea manager Graham Potter opens up on club’s ownership
On Thursday, Potter was officially announced as Chelsea’s next manager to succeed Thomas Tuchel, who was fired barely three months after the club was acquired for $4.86 billion by a group led by American Todd Boehly. “I think it’s the beginning of a really exciting moment,” Potter said in an interview with the club’s website that was posted on Monday.
Before taking over at Brighton & Hove Albion, the 47-year-old had managerial stints at Ostersund of Sweden and Swansea City. He said his move to the six-time English champions was a positive step in his career.
Potter remarked, “It’s simply fantastic to be able to take the next step and to be able to work with an intriguing group of guys that we have here.” “And that’s a tremendous opportunity for me—to compete at the top level and try to build a winning team.”
Potter continued by saying that he had grown as a manager as a result of his time at Brighton, who he assisted in 2020 and 2021 in avoiding relegation. Potter remarked, “We’ve learnt a lot about how to handle the ups and downs in the Premier League. About how you must accept responsibility when things aren’t going smoothly. However, I believe we may benefit greatly from those experiences, and as a result, we are much better and stronger.
In the summer transfer window, Chelsea spent almost 250 million pounds ($287 million), but after six games, they are sixth in the league.
