Chelsea make Graham Potter the PL’s 4th highest-paid manager after giving him huge £60m deal

Chelsea have made Graham Potter the Premier League’s fourth highest-paid manager after giving him a mammoth deal.

The Blues announced the appointment of former Brighton & Hove Albion boss Potter as manager on Thursday afternoon.

The Englishman has replaced Thomas Tuchel, who lost his job following Chelsea’s Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb earlier this week.

How much are Chelsea paying Potter?

The Blues have given Potter a mammoth deal worth £60m.

Potter has signed a five-year deal worth a cool £12m-per-year, per Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph.
