Chelsea interim head coach Bruno Saltor has said he will take things ‘one day at a time’ as he prepares to the lead the Blues following the dismissal of Graham Potter last night.

The Spaniard takes temporary charge of the side for the foreseeable future, with his first game arriving tomorrow evening when Liverpool visit Stamford Bridge.

Bruno has said there isn’t a timeframe on how long he will be leading the side for but stated he is happy to take things ‘day by day’ as he puts his stamp on training and matches, while also wishing the departing Potter and his assistant Billy Reid well at his first pre-match press conference.

‘Well first of all I have to say it is a sad day because Graham and Billy are leaving,’ Bruno said of the departing duo at his first pre-match press conference.

‘They brought me to this great club and first and foremost, they are two top coaches, top people, top human beings and how I see it things is I have to be as professional as I can for the team.

‘My job now is to guide the players, to help the players and to prepare for the game against Liverpool as best as we can.

‘It’s really important right now for us to just focus day by day. How much we can control, what we can affect and right now what we can control is how hard we train today, how we play tomorrow and then after that we will see where we go from there.

‘If I'm here, it's because club thought it was the right step. I spoke to the board and they have been very supportive with me.

‘Of course, it's a massive challenge. I have a lot of experience, I will try to guide the players and I feel I can really help the younger players.’

Bruno was also quizzed by the gathered media at Cobham as to whether he’d be interested in taking the job on a full-time basis, however the Spaniard was quick to play down anything long-term and insists today’s training session and tomorrow’s clash with Liverpool is his only focus.

‘Longer-term is not something I can control so I don’t focus on anything too far ahead,’ the former Brighton defender added.

‘It’s been a really difficult 24 hours or so, very emotional but this is football and I have to get on with things and try to focus on a big game tomorrow. That’s the focus.

‘Of course, it is difficult. I worked closely with Graham and Billy and you see how this can affect them, their families and everything like that.

‘I’m only focusing on what I can control and I’m taking things day by day, and game by game.’
