Start Reading

According to a report from Sky Sports on Thursday, Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter have verbally agreed that Potter will take over as the team's new manager and succeed Thomas Tuchel.

A day after their shocking 1-0 loss away to Dinamo Zagreb in their inaugural Champions League group stage match, Chelsea fired Tuchel on Wednesday.

The London club lost against Leeds United and Southampton, dropping them to sixth and 10 points, respectively, after six games this season after finishing third in the Premier League last year.

After Frank Lampard was fired, Tuchel joined Chelsea, and in his first season there, he helped the team win the Champions League. Additionally, he guided them to victories in the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup last year.

Potter is anticipated to replace Chelsea's current manager, according to British media, before Chelsea's Premier League matchup against Fulham on Saturday.

With six victories, one loss, and a draw thus far this season, Potter has helped Brighton move up to fourth place in the standings.

In his three seasons as manager, the 47-year-old has guided Brighton to finishes of 15th, 16th, and ninth. He was hired by the club in May 2019. Before leading Brighton, he led Swansea City in the Championship.
