Next Tottenham manager: new Graham Potter claim emerges after Spurs links
Michael Bridge doesn’t think Brighton manager Graham Potter would reject the possibility of managing Tottenham.
The 46-year-old was linked with work in north London over the summer, but the Telegraph reported last month that the former Swansea boss had no interest in the role as he wouldn’t want to “risking his reputation” by working under Daniel Lévy.
What’s the latest news with Graham Potter?
This may only be his fourth season as a manager in English football, but Potter’s work with Brighton is praised almost every week.
Their 14 points in seven Premier League appearances put the Seagulls in 6th place, just two points behind leaders Chelsea and the goal difference alone between the two Manchester clubs and the top four.
But Potter’s impact wasn’t just on their position in the league, he made Brighton play a brand of football that you wouldn’t normally associate with a team that finished in the bottom half of the table. over the past two seasons.
ENTER THE CONTEST
This is Potter’s impressive work, he was one of the many names mentioned when Jose Mourinho was sacked in April and then came up again in recent weeks, with Nuno Espirito Santo under pressure after three straight losses in September.
But while The Telegraph has denied any discussion of Potter replacing the Portuguese at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Bridge just doesn’t think it would.

What did Bridge say?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think with Potter it’s kind of coming from some reporters who have a helping hand with Levy.
“I look at Graham Potter and I’m like ‘Would you really turn down the job at Tottenham? You will never get the job at Man City, you will never get the job at Liverpool, you will never get the job at Chelsea.
“I would be skeptical of what I read about Potter. Everyone is on the Potter train right now and with good reason, but I was saying that in the summer he had a few good seasons, but he didn’t. finished only four points better than Chris Hughton so I wasn’t sure I’m still not if I’m being honest with you.
Would Potter refuse Tottenham?
It’s easy to say no right now when Brighton are flying high at the top of the table and Tottenham are going through a rough patch.
But Potter was in charge in Sweden just over three years ago and in the Championship as recently as 2019, which means the job at Spurs would still comfortably be the biggest job of his career.
After his impressive job on the South Coast over the past two years, Potter may well be aiming for a bigger job than Tottenham, as he is also set to replace Steve Bruce at Newcastle, according to The Sun, so it is another possibility.
