Graham Potter very happy to have said yes to Chelsea


Graham Potter, passing through the Champions League pre-match press conference, was logically asked about the reasons that led him to say yes to Chelsea.

In comments reported by BBC Football, Graham Potter expressed his happiness to have joined Chelsea: “The beauty of football and the beauty of life is that you never know what can happen. I had very intense conversations with the owners; I first realized that they are good people who have succeeded in their lives outside of football. It’s a really exciting project, it was really positive. It’s been a whirlwind, getting to know people, leaving Brighton, learning about the players. So far it’s been really positive. » he explained.

Graham Potter looking forward to it

For a first on the Chelsea bench, Graham Potter will discover the high level of the Champions League on Wednesday evening at Stamford Bridge against Leipzig: “My experiences in the Champions League were as a supporter. I have Europa League experience with Ostersunds, going to Galatasaray and winning there was fantastic, PAOK too. It’s an amazing night for us, it’s really exciting. At the same time, we focus on the game, try to put a team together and get to know the players and staff on the training ground. It is undeniable, we are really looking forward to it. » he added.

A challenge

He knows that the trust of his bosses is important and thanks them for it: « The football club here, the history, the tradition, the size of the club and to participate in the Champions League, it’s a completely different challenge to the one I had once. I had three fantastic years at Brighton, an incredible football club, but I’m very grateful that the owners here have supported me and believed in me to work with the quality we have here, to be competitive and put a team on the field of which our supporters are very proud. » he concluded.
