Chelsea cancels Graham Potter’s unveiling

Chelsea has cancelled the official unveiling of Graham Potter as their new manager.

The former Brighton boss was due to be presented to the media today but the Blues feel it is not appropriate as the UK enters a period of mourning because of the Queen’s death.

The club had confirmed yesterday that Potter would replace Thomas Tuchel, shortly before news about the monarch’s demise was made public.

Potter was also preparing to lead the Chelsea team out against Fulham on Saturday.

But the Premier League also confirmed on Friday morning that all fixtures this weekend would be called off as a mark of respect.

Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty at a meeting this morning, following an earlier Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport call discussing this weekend’s fixtures.
