Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, has said that one of the factors in his decision to accept the London club’s offer was the Blues’ excellent football team.
Naija News recalls that the Englishman accepted the offer to replace Thomas Tuchel after he was sacked following their 1-0 defeat away to Dinamo Zagreb.
The English manager has also stressed that he is not afraid of dealing with the intense pressure at Stamford.
The former Brighton manager made this statement at a news conference held before tonight’s Carabao Cup match at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City.
“I would say it is a little bit unfair to assess Chelsea now because the change of ownership has happened. We are on a new direction, a new path and ultimately that is part of the challenge.
“If I wanted a nice easy life, I could have quite easily stayed working at Brighton in the Premier League and signed a new contract and been absolutely OK,” said the manager.
However, he added that he would have enjoyed living on a free rent at Brighton if he had decided to stay back at American Express Community Stadium
“And I wouldn’t have had too many questions about myself or pressure or sacking or anything like that,” he said.
