Sky Sports journalist states Graham Potter wouldn’t turn down Tottenham Hotspur job
By Eddie Razo -

Following a three-match losing streak in the Premier League competition, manager Nuno Espírito Santo hopes that the victory over Aston Villa is the beginning of Tottenham Hotspur getting their season back on track. 

During the losing skid, there were many questions and comments regarding whether Nuno is the guy for Tottenham to lead this rebuild under the new Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici. 

One of the hot names in English football is Graham Potter, who has Brighton & Hove Albion fighting for a top-four spot to start the 2021-22 season. Many pundits and media members have called for Tottenham to monitor the 46-year-old as Newcastle United also has eyes on him following their takeover. 

Sky Sports’ Michael Bridge spoke to Give Me Sport, where he stated that if Tottenham were to pull the plug on Nuno, Potter would accept an offer from the north London-based club should it come his way.

“I think with Potter, that’s a little bit from certain journalists having a prod at Levy,” Bridge said. “I look at Graham Potter and think, ‘would you really turn down the Tottenham job?’ You’re never going to get the Man City job. You’re never going to get the Liverpool job; you’re never going to get the Chelsea job.

“I’d be skeptical about what I’ve read about Potter. Everyone is on the Potter train at the moment and with good reason, but I was saying in the summer, he’s had a good few seasons, but he only finished four points better off than Chris Hughton did, so I wasn’t sure. I’m still not if I’m being honest with you.”

Tottenham Hotspur heads to St. James’ Park against Newcastle following the international break.

While it is an annoying obstacle to Spurs succeeding on the pitch, and as people have posted on here numerous times, anyone willing to work under Levy/ENIC should be immediately discounted , they’re clearly mad or desperate.

Get him in. His football is sexier than Nuno’s. Our current boss doesn’t seem sure as to what his style is and appears to be being influenced by Levy as to team selection. I’d like to see Potter given a chance, if he can get us playing like Brighton then it would be proper Spurs football just like the old days. If he can stand up to Levy all the better.

Agree with the sentiment but suspect Potter has no chance v Levy if a heavyweight with a reputation and influence and PR like Mourinho hit a brick wall. You take the money and read the script as far as Levy is concerned. Poch skipped ahead a few too many chapters and tried too may re writes His pre European Cup final comments tell the story.

Sadly true. Levy would be at home living in China, his height would fit right in too.

Graham Pottingshed is not a ‘sexy’ enough name for the retail arena, doesn’t really fit with the pretence and spin that it’s all new and ‘progressive’. Which is ironic, because he’s actually the embodiment of the modern manager.

Personally I feel he’s doing great job there, and I saw his Swedish team take on the Woolwich at the Emptycrates a few years ago in the Ropey and they did well, lacked bit of quality but he had them totally on it. He’s no mug. Which is why working for Levy might not appeal…
