Graham Potter Has Officially Been Named Chelsea's New Manager On A Five-Year Contract.

He has signed a five-year deal with Chelsea FC following the departure of Thomas Tuschel, who happened to be the sixth manager to have had enough of being the manager at Stamford Bridge.

He accomplished the milestone by becoming Chelsea's sixth long-standing manager in just 589 days. He also led the team to 100 competitive games while serving as manager and is the only manager to have led the Blues to more major domestic and European finals than any other manager.

Todd Boehly, together with Behdad Eghbali, on Wednesday, had negotiations with Brighton & Hove Albion’s manager, Graham Potter, when he became Chelsea's clear first choice, and the co-owners at Stamford Bridge agreed to pay his £15m release clause.

He appears to be going to keep up a good rapport with Marc Cucurella, the Spanish player who was brought in from Brighton, Cucurella joined Chelsea in a transaction at a base price of £56 million plus a potential add-on of £7 million.
