Tottenham director Steve Hitchen recommends Graham Potter to Daniel Levy

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham technical performance director Steve Hitchen has recommended the name of Graham Potter as a managerial candidate to chairman Daniel Levy.

Tottenham are in the market for a new manager after Jose Mourinho was given the sack by Levy last month. The Portuguese tactician’s tumultuous 17-month reign came to an end following a 2-2 draw to Everton.

Former midfielder Ryan Mason has been named interim manager of Tottenham until the end of the season as the search for a long-term replacement goes on. And the latest name to emerge as a potential candidate to take over the reins for the next season in Graham Potter. The 45-year-old, as per the report, is high on the wishlist of club’s director Steve Hitchen, who has now recommended him to Levy.

Potter started out his managerial career at Swedish club Ostersund in 2011 and went on to stay at the club for seven years, before taking over at Swansea City in the summer of 2018.

During his time at the Liberty Stadium, Potter garnered a lot of critical acclaim for the way he got his team playing. A year later, the English manager was snapped up Brighton & Hove Albion, where he has continued to do well, given the resources at his disposal.

Brighton, under Potter, have become known for their attractive, attacking style of play, only inhibited by the lack of a top-quality goalscorer – something that would absolutely not a problem at Tottenham if Potter were to take over the reins.

Potter isn’t the biggest name out there and hasn’t won a major trophy in his career as of yet. So, there will be reservations over his appointment. However, the work he has done both at Swansea and Brighton in a short while is commendable. Whether that is enough to convince Levy to take a punt on him remains to be seen.
