According to a report in the Telegraph, Potter signed a five-year deal with Chelsea which is one of the longest given out in The history of Chelsea and is worth £12million a year, which could earn the former Brighton boss £60million if he stays the full term.
Potter left his former club “Brighton” with some members of his staff from The Amex Stadium to West London including assistant Billy Reid, coaches Bjorn Hamberg and Bruno, and goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts.
New owner of Chelsea “Todd Boehly” had placed himself in the role of sporting director during the summer, but now wants a permanent person in that role that would allow him to step back, and just offer support to the new full-time appointment, along with Behdad Eghbali.
The club wasted no time in getting Potter’s appointment secured after parting ways with Thomas Tuchel.
Confirming his appointment Chelsea’s new American owner Boehly said: “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.
He has had a major impact at his previous clubs and we look forward to his positive impact at Chelsea. We look forward to supporting him, his coaching team and the squad in realising their full potential in the coming months and years.”
