Graham Potter has said that Chelsea job was too big of an opportunity to turn down in his first press conference as the club's new head coach.

Potter was officially announced the new Chelsea boss last week after leaving Brighton & Hove Albion, signing a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to the press ahead of his first game as the Blues boss - against RB Salzburg in the Champions League - Potter admitted that, while it was difficult to leave Brighton, he simply couldn't turn down the opportunity to take over in west London.

"I'm not going to lie, it's been a whirlwind in terms of leaving Brighton," Potter admitted. "The job is too big to turn down, it felt right for me."
