Pride of London briefly examine photos and look at a video from new head coach Graham Potter’s first Chelsea training sessions ahead of the Champions League clash versus RB Salzburg.

The dawn of a new era has been upon us for some time at Stamford Bridge. Ever since Roman Abramovich was ousted as CFC owner, the club was evidently undergoing significant transition. Though morphing into the Boehly-Clearlake age was not complete until recently, as the ownership group considered their relationship with Tuchel unsatisfactory.

Now that their actual preferred choice is in the hotseat, the latest period in Blues history is about to be written. While Tuchel’s dismissal remains a sore point for many Chels’ supporters, a form of closure should transpire on Wednesday evening as Potter begins his tenure.

The former Brighton & Hove Albion manager is now inducted in the ways of the west London side and Cobham, having been there almost a week and undertaking a few training sessions. Evening Standard journalist Nizaar Kinsella revealed that the players consider the type of practice and atmosphere “fun” under the 47-year-old.

This is great news for CFC, along with supporters hoping to see the team appropriately gel and cohesively form as one under Potter. The latest Chelsea boss was well-liked at the Seagulls helm and will wish to get his current squad onside. The update sounds like things are going according to plan in that respect.

Above this paragraph you can see a tweet from the official Twitter account which posts a video of what I believe is Potter’s second coaching exercise. Below is a photo via Goal which certainly shows joy at the maiden session with the brand new gaffer.

The video is interesting for several reasons, in PoL’s view. First of all, happiness absolutely emanates from players and coaches as they get to work. Secondly, and arguably more importantly, the roster appears focused on the task ahead, and with regard to impressing Potter as well as his staff.
