New Delhi: Graham Potter has been named Chelsea’s new permanent manager after the surprise sacking of Thomas Tuchel. Chelsea confirmed Potter’s arrival by tweeting, “Chelsea Football Club is delighted to welcome Graham Potter as our new Head Coach!”

The 47-year-old departed from Brighton after three years in charge at the Amex Stadium. Potter has been handed a long-term contract after Tuchel’s surprise Champions League group stage defeat against Dinamo Zagreb.

The Blues’ new head coach has a huge job on his hands to steady the ship at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have spent more than any other club in the summer transfer window to bring in the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Wesley Fofana. Still, Tuchel was unable to deliver instant results with a new-look squad.

Graham Potter says THIS on partnering with Chelsea

Potter said in the official statement said, “I am incredibly proud and excited to represent Chelsea FC, this fantastic football club. I am very excited to partner with Chelsea’s new ownership group and look forward to meeting and working with the exciting group of players and to develop a team and culture that our amazing fans can be proud of.”

Graham Potter is set to start his Chelsea story when they take on Fulham in a west London derby clash at Craven Cottage on Saturday if the match is not postponed.
