Comparisons to Milk Tray Man and Jumper Focus catch Graham Potter off guard

Graham Potter expected more scrutiny when he was appointed Chelsea head coach – but comparisons to the Milk Tray Man and a focus on his turtleneck choices weren’t what he expected.

The 47-year-old left Brighton to take charge at Stamford Bridge last month and has led the Blues to a draw and four wins in his first five games at the helm.

Potter admits he’s “higher profile” now and his “face unfortunately gets on TV too much,” but it was social media talk of a makeover that caught him off guard.

When asked if he was compared to the Milk Tray Man, he replied, “Somebody said to me the other day that I had a ‘glow up.’

“I have no idea what that is. I grow in my face like good wine.

“I had a haircut from someone who cuts boys’ hair. So that probably made a difference, I don’t know. It cost a lot more than I thought.”

Discussions about his Touchline wardrobe have highlighted his choice of jumper – but Potter revealed he’s sported a lucky jumper since Brighton beat Tottenham in April.



I want discussions about me to be a little more sophisticated than my sweater or my haircut

“I used to wear the turtleneck sweater. It’s not a new jumper,” he added.

“It’s not that old, but it’s not new either. If you stop by again – and I know this isn’t investigative journalism – I think we beat Tottenham 1-0 with that jumper, so maybe it’s a lucky jumper? I do not know.

“I want discussions about me to be a little more sophisticated than my sweater or my haircut, but at the end of the day there’s 24-hour news.

“You have to fill it with something, so it might as well be my sweater.”
