Potter told the club’s website:
“I think it’s the beginning of a really exciting period, with new ownership that I am really, really excited about and impressed by, first as people, and then with the vision for the club and what they wanted to do.”
“The club’s history speaks for itself, but it’s about trying to create in our own way again.”
“It’s just nice to be able to take the next step and work with such an exciting group of players here to compete at the top and try to build a winning team; it’s a fantastic opportunity for me.”
“It’s about building a team that competes, respects each other, is honest, and works together, so it’s a combination of football and human values that we try to work with.”
Potter did magnificent work standout at the South Coast, helping Brighton avoid relegation in his first season at the Amex Stadium. He then built a fiercely competitive team that is a joy to watch. His reputation at the South Coast is the reason why Chelsea approached him.
