Graham Potter makes promise to Chelsea fans ahead of Salzburg

Graham Potter spoke to the press on Tuesday ahead of his first game as Chelsea boss.

Potter has replaced Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea’s head coach and as their meeting with Fulham was postponed last weekend, his first game in charge comes against RB Salzburg.

Chelsea play host to Salzburg on Wednesday evening in their second Champions League clash of the season.

Their first European outing of 2022/23 saw them lose to Dinamo Zagreb last week.

As a result, Chelsea really need a win on Wednesday if they are to stand any chance of topping their group.

Ahead of the tie, Graham Potter has made a promise to Chelsea fans:

“I’ll promise I’ll do my very best every single day. The team I’d like to see is balanced between attack and defence. We want a humble team that fights. We want our own identity and that supporters can see what we’re going to do.”

Potter also discussed how involved he will be with everything go on at Chelsea: “I am a head coach and my job is to help the football club. I’ve always taken that approach. In Sweden, I had the chance to build a football club and that became clear that the club was the most important thing.

“My main job is to help the guys here, help the players that are here, and put out a team on the pitch that the supporters are proud of.”

On facing Salzburg, Potter added: “A team that is very vertical and aggressive. It’s Champions League so it’s never easy. We will need to be well prepared.”
