“I enjoy it”- PL manager addresses claims that link him with replacing Conte at Tottenham

Brighton boss Graham Potter shuts down suggestions that he will replace Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur

Brighton boss Graham Potter has firmly dismissed the links that tipped him with a move to replace Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur. The former had recently managed his side to an impressive 4-0 victory against Manchester United, which has raised his reputation even further.

Potter is currently tied down at the Amex Stadium until 2025, but he was linked to replace Conte at Tottenham recently. It was stated that the Seagulls coach was the frontrunner to move to N17 if the Italian manager departs this summer. The latter has not committed his future and is subjected to links to Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking in an interview (h/t The Argus), Potter has denied that he has any intention to leave Brighton and Hove Albion. He even called out the media for the ridiculous links as Conte is already at the managerial helm at Spurs.

“You guys sometimes put stuff in the newspapers that’s not exactly true. What can I say? It’s got to the point now where there’s not even a vacancy and you’re getting linked to it. I don’t know what to say. I’ve never said I want to leave at all.”

Spurs need stability!

Potter did not stop there as he even took a dig at the media for falsely linking him with a move to a bigger club. He pointed out how they had criticised him a few weeks ago and the contrasting nature of the news in recent weeks. Finally, he reiterated once again how he is currently happy at his current club.

“It wasn’t so long back that I was probably getting criticism and if you’d gone on some local fan sites, I bet I wasn’t the flavour of the month, so things change pretty quickly – let’s not forget that. But I’ve always had the support of Tony [Bloom] and the board and they’ve given me chance to work, so I’m grateful for that and I enjoy it here.”

There is no doubt that the Englishman is one of the rising managers in world football, having been a key presence in Brighton’s rise in recent years. He has already taken them to their highest points tally in the Premier League and is in line to even finish in the top half of the table for the first time.

Not to mention, that is considering the fact that Potter’s side had gone through a rough run of form that saw them lose six matches in succession in the last two months. It is no wonder why the 46-year-old was on the shortlist to replace Jose Mourinho last summer. However, even with the promise, it is high time that we enjoy some stability moving forward.

Antonio Conte’s future at Tottenham is surrounded by uncertainty.

Conte came in when the season was already underway, and he has lifted the team without even enjoying adequate time to impose his style on the squad. We could not ask for a better coach right now, as he has proven his worth by bringing in trophies during his previous stints.

The 52-year-old manager can do the same here as well, but he would need to be supported for that purpose. While Potter is an attractive coach indeed, changing bosses is the last thing we need right now. After all, we have gone through several changes, which have adversely affected the team in many ways.

Now the Tottenham board must do their best to keep hold of Conte and give him the tools to end our title drought. Hence, Potter ruling himself out would not be a blow if the club takes the right decision regarding their future.
