Chelsea midfielder ​Jorginho already impressed with Potter: He’ll like this experience!

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has welcomed the appointment of Graham Potter as the club’s new manager.

The ex-Brighton head coach will be tasked with ensuring the Blues finish in the top four in the Premier League this season.

However, his first task is to navigate a Champions League group stage game at home against RB Salzburg on Wednesday.

“A lot has happened in the last week as everyone knows,” Jorginho said at his pre-match press conference about Potter taking over from Thomas Tuchel.

“Life is fast and things can change quickly.

“We are excited to work with him [Potter] and his staff. It’s been good the first few days, very positive.

“We had a great, great time with Thomas and we appreciate everything he did for us and for the club. However, now we are working hard with the new coach.

“We are working a lot in meetings to see what the new manager will bring to us and understand as quickly as possible what he wants from us on the pitch.

“Already he has done very well and made a positive impression. He has been asking us what we feel comfortable with and also what he wants to see more from us. There is a lot of information to come and we need to try and understand that and help each other.”

The Italian added: “He is a good coach, he’s proven that at Brighton, and I think this new challenge is not just for us but it’s for him as well.

“As we always do, we try to help everyone as a team and I think he is well prepared for what’s coming.

“It’s going to be a new experience for him and I think he will like it a lot. At the end of the day, it’s about results and we will look to win this game [v RB Salzburg] to get the coach off to a great start and make everyone feel good!”
