Official: Graham Potter named new Chelsea manager

Chelsea announced today Thursday that they have appointed former Brighton manager Graham Potter as the London team’s technical director, replacing the abruptly sacked German Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea released a statement on their official website saying: “Chelsea FC are delighted to welcome Graham Potter as our new manager with a five-year contract that will bring progressive football and his pioneering coaching to the club.”

Chelsea have confirmed in a statement that the 47-year-old Potter will take over technical responsibility for the Blues as soon as his contract with his former team Brighton expires.

Potter drew attention for his compelling attacking style that put Brighton in fourth after six rounds at the start of the new Premier League season, just two points behind leaders Arsenal and three more than Chelsea VI.

The former manager of Swedish Östersund and Welsh club Swansea City will replace Herman Tuchel, who was sacked yesterday Wednesday for poor results at the start of the new season after heavy spending in the summer transfer market.

Tuchel, 49, was linked by a contract with the London club until 2024, but he left after spending around 300 million euros over the summer to sign new players such as Raheem Sterling, Gabonese Bearer Aymeric Aubameyang, Frenchman Wesley Fofuna and Senegalese Kalidou. Coulibaly.
