At Brighton he’s changed the style of play and helped them to their best ever finish in the Premier League season.
The job at Chelsea though is a different kettle of fish as winning is the only thing that is accepted at Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel won the Champions League, the Club World Cup and Super Cup, but when the results started to drop he was sacked, opening the opportunity for Potter to get the job.
The English manager was billed to take charge of his first game before the death of Queen Elizabeth II halted play.
Speaking for the first time since taking the job Potter revealed how delighted he was in his new surroundings and how things are going.
He told the Club’s Twitter handle: “It’s the start of a really exciting period, I think.
“New ownership, who I was really really excited and impressed by, firstly as people and then their vision for the club and what they wanted to do.
“Of course the history of the club speaks for itself but it’s about trying to create that again in our own way.”
The new Chelsea boss will now take charge of his first game on Wednesday night when they host RB salzburg.
