Graham Potter was convinced by the club’s vision under the new management.
The new boss has signed a five-year contract with the Blues replacing Thomas Tuchel who was sacked on Wednesday morning.
Potter gave his first interview on Sunday led by chairman Todd Boehly who believes it was the right move for Chelsea.
“It’s the start of a really exciting period, I think,” Potter told the club’s official site.
“New ownership, who I was really, really excited with and impressed by, firstly as people and then their vision for the club and what they wanted to do.
“Of course, the history of the club speaks for itself, but it’s about trying to create that again in our own way.
“We like to play in an attacking way, a balanced way, and players have to feel free to make decisions and express themselves.
“It’s about winning, creating a team which competes, is honest and works together, it’s a combination between football and human values.”
