RB Salzburg boss Matthias Jaissle has spoken about new Chelsea manager Graham Potter.
The two sides are set to face off in the Champions League group stages on Wednesday, with the Blues welcoming the Austrian outfit.
While Jaissle may have been expecting to take on German Thomas Tuchel, he will now face off against ex-Brighton boss Potter, who took the Blues job a week ago.
“It’s a bit of a pity – I know him personally,” said Jaissle of Tuchel.
“But we had to be professionals. We haven’t seen any games of the new manager with Chelsea, but we know about their individual quality.
“We have analysed their character and the new manager with ideas from (his) old club. We are very well prepared.
“It was incredible, just the drive here, to go through London, to come here to here to the stadium, to soak up the atmosphere, it’s something incredible – it’s a dream come true for me.”
