British coach took over from Thomas Tuchel last week, with American magnate Todd Bohley pulling up from Brighton & Hove Albion.
Chelsea’s Graham Potter appears a rather unassuming gentleman. Yet the former Brighton & Hove Albion boss is now the most expensive football manager ever. Or should that be head coach, as so many of them seem to now call themselves. Maybe Potter’s choice is an altruistic one, as opposed to one of self-importance.
The 47-year-old earns a huge salary of 10 million pounds per year. Despite receiving money at the Amax Stadium, only 2 million pounds per year only.
There was Beatrix Potter of writing fame, The fictional wizard, and Peter Kay creation, Brian Potter – but now Graham Potter shall continue the long line of illustrious English pottering. In all seriousness
That figure puts Potter behind only Pep Guardiola, who earns £19million a year, Jurgen Klopp 16 million a year and Antonio Conte at 15 million pounds a year.
Brendan Rodgers is earning the same salary as Leicester City at £10m a year, while new Manchester United boss Eric Ten Hag earns £9m a year. Mikel Arteta earns £8.3 million a year.
