Chelsea appoints Graham Potter as new manager

Chelsea have appointed former Brighton coach, Graham Potter, as their new manager following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel.

Potter left fellow Premier League club to take up the role and has signed a five-year deal with the Blues.
Chelsea paid a compensation fee of 21 million pounds to Brighton to allow Potter, as well as his assistant Billy Reid, first-team coaches Bjorn Hamberg and Bruno, goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts and assistant head of recruitment Kyle Macaulay to join the London club.

Barring any last minute changes to the fixture, in view of Queen Elizabeth II’s demise, the 47-year-old’s first game in charge will be an away derby with fellow west London club Fulham on Saturday.
