Tottenham Hotspur: Graham Potter could emerge as managerial candidate

Tottenham Hotspur: Graham Potter could emerge as managerial candidate - Tottenham Hotspur News

According to a report by the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur could target Brighton and Hove Albion boss Graham Potter as a possible replacement for the dismissed Jose Mourinho – with the Englishman emerging as a possible candidate alongside Scott Parker. 

Mourinho was given his marching order by Spurs on Monday after a very bizarre season, coming after they briefly raced to top of the Premier League table near the end of last year.

Can you name all 10 of these obscure Tottenham signings? Let's get started! Who is this?

Tottenham could target Potter

Tottenham even thrashed Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford, becoming only the second team in Premier League history to do so, but a sorry slump of form soon followed their electric start.

A dismal run of results after the New Year included an humiliating Europa League exit at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb and a tame north London derby loss to Arsenal.

Who do you want to see as next Spurs boss?

As a result, Mourinho was sacked by Tottenham, and there have been no shortage of successors touted in the media.

The Mail now claim, alongside the usual suspects Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers, that the likes of Parker and Potter could now emerge as unlikely candidates.

Transfer Tavern take

The latter man in particular has attracted plenty of plaudits for his job on the south coast, with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola blown away by his quality and even calling him ‘the best English manager right now’ whilst professing his love for Brighton’s style of play (Brighton and Hove Independent).

As well as this, Independent journalist Miguel Delaney dubbed him an ‘excellent manager’ and praised the Seagulls’ ‘brave’ decision to appoint him.

Out of all the outside candidates, as a result, we believe the £1 million-per-year boss could be considered as a very credible dark horse for the job behind favourites Nagelsmann and Rodgers, due to his relatively low wages and forward-thinking tactics.
