Reece James gives honest verdict on Graham Potter as Chelsea manager


Reece James thinks Chelsea have an exciting future under Graham Potter

Addressing the official Chelsea website (h/t Football.London), Chelsea defender Reece James believes the club’s future is bright on the pitch under new manager Graham Potter after just a few days of working together.

Potter, who was previously at Brighton and Hove Albion, arrived at Stamford Bridge a day after Thomas Tuchel was sacked by the club following the Champions League opening night defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

James, who signed a new six-year contract with Chelsea days before the change of management position, is optimistic on the future of the team and has big goals for himself and for the club.

Reece James is confident about Chelsea’s future under Graham Potter.

Here’s what the England international said (h/t Football.London):

“In football, things move very quickly. I’ve played against Graham Potter’s teams a few times and he seems like a good guy so far. He’s hungry to win and I think it’s going to be an exciting future.

The former Wigan Athletic loanee has enjoyed an exceptional rise in his Chelsea career. He’s been one of the best wingers in Europe for the past two seasons.

Five goals and nine assists in 26 league appearances last season were lavish returns for a defender. Plus, he can do it all when it comes to being all-around on offense and defending well in one-on-one situations in wide areas.

James has already won the Champions League and the Club World Cup with Chelsea. The 22-year-old lost both domestic cup finals last season. He Goals to win every competition the Blues enter while converting finals into trophy wins.

“The last few years have been good, but we were in the final where we also lost. We want to win every competition we enter, and if we make it to the final there’s no reason why we can’t go all the way.

In addition to James, the new Potter boss left a good impression on many players in the Chelsea team. It’s as if they’re going to enjoy playing under one of the most tactically astute managers in the Premier League.

Despite the cruelty of how Tuchel was sacked, player reaction tells us that club co-owner Todd Boehly may have made the right decision in making this managerial change. Only time will tell if this is the start of something special, or just talk.
