He’s authoritative sold me – Ex-Brighton star warns Chelsea players about Potter
Former Brighton midfielder, Dale Stephens, has warned Chelsea players about their newly appointed manager Graham Potter.
Stephens said that Potter, who officially replaced Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea coach on Thursday, is authoritative, adding that he sold him.
Asked whether Potter could step up and take the tough decisions at Chelsea when called upon, Stephens said (via Sussex Express): “Well, he sold me. He is very much a modern manager.
“He has got his ways and his ways of playing. He is the right man for Chelsea and for the big jobs. When you see vacancies pop for Champions League clubs, he is always in the hat for the top jobs.”
He added, “He is very level headed and gets his points across. He is authoritative but does it in a manner that suits him. He is level headed and calm, and good or bad news, he is honest. I think players appreciate that and I’m sure that is an aspect that is positive for him.”
