Done Deal! Chelsea Confirms Graham Potter as New Manager After Thomas Tuchel Exit
Here is Fabrizio Romano ‘Here We Go’ on Graham Potter to Chelsea. The ever reliable Fabrizio Romano has confirmed Graham Potter will become Chelsea’s new manager.
Graham Potter Verbally Agrees to Become Chelsea Manager and now looks set to leave Brighton and Hove Albion to become Chelsea’s new manager.
It was also reported earlier today that Potter would not be hosting a press conference for Brighton’s Premier League game this weekend against Bournemouth due to Chelsea’s interest in him.
Now, the very reliable Matt Law has said that Potter has verbally agreed to become the new head coach of Chelsea.
Law continued by saying all that remains is to complete the formal process and then Potter will be the Blues’ new manager.
Report from Italian Fabrizio Romano also confirmed that potter has agreed to become the new Chelsea manager in a recent tweet.
Today looks to be the day that Chelsea announce their new manager after sacking Thomas Tuchel.
Despite the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino being discussed among fans, there has been one front-runner from the start. Brighton and Hove Albion’s Graham Potter.
Now, reports this morning are claiming that Potter has verbally agreed to join the Blues and that the announcement is imminent.
There is no hiding from the fact that this is a huge job for Potter and it will come with a lot of pressure.
Fortunately, Boehly and his consortium look set to back the Englishman and give him time to implement his style at Stamford Bridge.
Even since joining the Seagulls in 2019 from Swansea, Potter has taken the league by storm and established Brighton as a Premier League side.
This season, however, his side currently sit in fourth place, only behind Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City.
His incredible start to the campaign has only made people rate him higher and clearly, Chelsea took notice of that.
Potter apparently rejected offers from Manchester United and Tottenham to become their coach last season due to wanting a real top four side.
