Potter Joins Chelsea On Bigger Wage Than Predecessor Tuchel

Graham Potter has moved to Chelsea on bigger wages than his predecessor Thomas Tuchel.

The former Brighton manager signed with Chelsea on Thursday. He took his first training session on Friday at Cobham.

Potter, 47, will earn just over £10m a year - far more than sacked predecessor Thomas Tuchel who was paid around £8m a year.

Potter has taken with him from Brighton his assistant Billy Reid, first-team coaches Bjorn Hamberg and Bruno, goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts and assistant head of recruitment Kyle Macaulay.

A Chelsea source told The Sun says the new manager's leadership skills and his ability as a 'risk-taker' were what swung it for them.

The source added that chairman Todd Boehly and his fellow directors also admired Potter for taking the plunge and leaving England to manage Swedish minnows Ostersund where he led them to three promotions.
