This much was communicated to the public by the English outfit on Thursday evening.
The former Manager of Brighton & Hove Albion FC joins the club on a new 5yr deal.
“Chelsea Football Club is delighted to welcome Graham Potter as our new Head Coach, joining us on a five-year contract to bring his progressive football and innovative coaching to the Club,” the club stated via it’s official website.
Potter takes over from ex First team Coach, Thomas Tuchel.
The German was sacked by Chelsea on Wednesday morning in the aftermath of their shock 1-0 win to Croatian minnows, Dinamo Zagreb, in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) a day before.
Graham Potter is known for his tactical flexibility and ability to approach games based on his opponent’s style of games.
The English tactician was chosen above more recognized names like Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino.
Potter’s first task as Coach will be to guide the Blues back to winning ways when they travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham in their English Premier League (EPL) lunchtime kickoff om Saturday.
