Brighton confirm stance on the future of Tottenham target Graham Potter

According to Football.london, Brighton & Hove Albion chief executive Paul Barber has claimed that he expects manager Graham Potter to stay with the club for a long time amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham are on the hunt for a new manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked by the club last month. The Portuguese, who will be joining AS Roma at the start of the next season, lasted just 17 months at the helm before being axed.

Former Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason has taken over as interim boss until the end of the season as the club searches for a suitable full-time replacement. And, Potter’s name is one that has come up in conversations a lot, with reports claiming that Tottenham director Steve Hitchen recommending the Brighton manager’s name to chairman Daniel Levy.

Brighton & Hove Albion chief, Paul Barber, has dismissed any such possibilities, though, insisting that he expects Potter to stay at the Amex Stadium for a long time.

“We have no desire whatsoever to lose Graham [Potter]. Graham is very happy here. We are delighted with the work he is doing, the work that the staff around Graham are doing, so as far as we are concerned, there is absolutely no way that we would allow Graham to leave at this time.

“I don’t think there is any interest on Graham’s part either, I think he is very happy with what he is doing and we are delighted with what he is doing for us. So we are delighted with him and we expect him to be here for many years to come.”

Potter has done a fine job at Brighton, even though their position in the table might suggest otherwise. The 45-year-old has gotten the team playing an attacking, attractive brand of football while doing so on a meagre budget. He would be someone worth taking a punt on for Tottenham. However, it seems like Brighton will not be letting go of their man easily.
