Chelsea manager, Graham Potter has played down talk that taking the job at Stamford Bridge is a risk.
Potter was appointed by Blues co-owner, Todd Boehly to replace Thomas Tuchel.
He has now spoken about how the conversations went “quickly” and how he was impressed by the club owners.
“Things happened incredibly quickly. I had some really intense conversations with the owners and quickly I realised that, firstly, they were good people, intelligent people, who have made a huge success of their life outside of football and wanting to achieve something really exciting here,” Potter told the media on Tuesday ahead of their Champions League clash against FC Salsburg.
The 47-year-old Englishman has taken on by far his biggest coaching job, having cut his teeth with Swedish club Ostersunds for seven years before a short spell at Swansea City and then a highly impressive one with Brighton & Hove Albion.
“If you walk over the road it’s a risk.
“I left England when I was 30 years old and I went to a club that sacked the manager every year for the last five years,” Potter added.
