Potter has signed a five-year contract with the Blues following the departure of Thomas Tuchel on Wednesday morning.

The former Brighton boss comes to west London after three years with the Seagulls and establishing them as a mid-table side in the Premier League.

Potter is one of the most exciting coaches in the game, starting his journey in Sweden before bringing his talents to the English game over the past four seasons.

The 47-year-old is educated to degree level in disciplines beyond sport and has combined these experiences to forge a collaborative, forward-thinking approach while developing attacking and winning football.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly said this on the appointment: “We are thrilled to bring Graham to Chelsea.

He is a proven coach and an innovator in the Premier League who fits our vision for the club.

Not only is he extremely talented on the pitch, he has skills and capabilities that extend beyond the pitch which will make Chelsea a more successful club.

Potter is now set to be in the dugout for when Chelsea take on Fulham on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues will be aiming to get back to winning ways after their disappointing defeat in midweek to Dinamo Zagreb and Potter cannot wait to get going.

He 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 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.
