UCL: Brilliant, I’m proud – Potter reacts after his first game as Chelsea boss

New Chelsea boss, Graham Potter has said that his side were brilliant in their 1-1 Champions League draw against Salzburg on Wednesday, insisting he was “proud” of them.

It was Potter’s first game in charge of the Blues after he replaced Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea manager last week.

Though many fans and pundits have described his first at Stamford Bridge as disappointing, Potter told reporters after the match that he was proud of his team.

Raheem Sterling’s opener for Chelsea was cancelled out by Noah Okafor in the 75th minute.

Addressing the performance, the new Chelsea manager praised his players, saying, “The players gave everything.

“I was proud with how they acted, it’s not been easy with a change of coach and everything that comes with that, but their response has been brilliant. From an effort perspective, it was 100% there.”

It was a defensive lapse in the 75th minute by Thiago Silva that allowed Salzburg to pull the game back level following a period of pressure, snatching a point in the process.
