Premier League relegated club Swansea City have named former Southampton player Graham Potter as the new manager of the club on a three-year deal, the club announced on Monday.
Potter, 43, who last managed Sweden club Ostersunds, came into notice after leading the club from the Swedish fourth-tier to the top-flight in seven years at the club.
Along with this, he also guided them to the last-32 of the Europa League last term, where they were knocked out by Arsenal.
With the appointment, Potter substituted Portuguese boss Carlos Carvalhal, who left Swansea after the Welsh club’s relegation from the Premier League in 2017/18 season.
“It’s a chance to start again,” Potter told Swansea’s website. “We know how frustrating the last few years have been, but hopefully the relegation will be seen in a few years’ time as the best thing that ever happened to the club. We will try our best and work hard every day to give the supporters a team they can feel proud of; they can connect with and see are trying to improve.”
