Pioli Full of Praise for Chelsea Coach Graham Potter Ahead of UCL Match

Ahead of the big Champions League match between Chelsea and Milan, Stefano Pioli spoke to the media. The Rossoneri gaffer had much respect for his opposite number Graham Potter, who is coaching his third match as Chelsea boss.

If two teams who love to play attacking football meet, the quality (of the match) will be very high.

I know (Graham) Potter because I watched some of Brighton’s games last season. They played well.

In the press conference, it was evident that Pioli has a lot of respect for Potter. The latter took over as Chelsea boss following the Blues’ defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on matchday one. Former Sassuolo coach Roberto de Zerbi took over for Potter at Brighton.

Milan has four points from their first two Champions League games, leading the group. Chelsea is in last place, with just one point so far. The match will be crucial for both teams, especially the London-based side. The match this week will take place at Stamford Bridge, while the teams will reconvene at the San Siro next Tuesday.
