EPL: Hard Task Ahead As Chelsea Appoints Graham Potter As Head Coach

English Premiership giant, Chelsea Football Club, on Thursday, appointed former Brighton & Hove Albion manager, Graham Potter, to replace Thomas Tuchel as new head coach.

Potter arrives from Brighton on a 5-year contract, with a difficult task on his hands as a manager who has no experience at the Champions League level.

A statement from the club’s official website read, “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 a degree level in disciplines beyond sport and has combined these experiences to forge a collaborative, forward-thinking approach while developing attacking and winning football. “

It would be recalled that Tuchel was relieved of his managerial roles on Wednesday, hours after the club lost to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

Potters will be stepping into unfamiliar terrain as he has no previous experience at the top level and has won only one trophy, the Swedish Cup in 2017.

The demands Potter will face at Chelsea will contrast sharply with those at his previous clubs, however, unlikely giving him as much time to cultivate a team as he has had so far in his career.

“He’ll be expected to win every week, to challenge for trophies,” said former Chelsea player and assistant coach Jody Morris. “It’s totally different to being in a club where you are expected to be midtable and can go a couple of months without winning a game. You go a couple of games without winning at Chelsea and it’ll be totally different.”
