“We are thrilled to bring Graham Potter to Chelsea,” said Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly. He is a proven Premier League coach and an innovator who fits our vision for the Club. Not only is he a gifted player on the field, but he also possesses skills and abilities that will help Chelsea become a more successful club.
