Report: Spurs not interested in manager who didn’t want to work with Levy in 2021

Despite being interested in Graham Potter in the past, Tottenham Hotspur are not expected to ‘reignite interest’ in the former Chelsea boss as they search for a new manager in the summer.

Potter was recently sacked by Chelsea after less than a year in charge, with the club struggling in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

The 47-year-old rose to prominence as one of the most exciting young coaches in the game after helping to establish Brighton as a force in the top flight.

During his time with the Seagulls, Potter was renowned for favouring stylish football and encouraging the development of numerous players.

Tottenham are in need of a new permanent manager after parting ways with Antonio Conte recently.

The Italian’s former assistant Cristian Stellini is currently in charge until the end of this season, with support from coach Ryan Mason.

According to talkSPORT, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is still a fan of Potter despite his less-than-impressive tenure at Chelsea.

Tottenham were apparently keen on Potter during his time at Brighton (Football.London), but the North London side opted to appoint Nuno Espirito Santo in 2021 instead.

Now, the latest from Football Insider suggests Tottenham would not be looking to hire Potter this time around.

It is thought Potter “didn’t want to work with Daniel Levy” back in 2021, and the fact that the Spurs chairman is still at the club would make it difficult to come to an agreement again.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do still rate Graham Potter very highly, despite what happened at Chelsea.

I think the Chelsea job was just never going to work for someone like Potter, who probably operates better with less high-profile names and all that money flying around.

With that in mind, a role at Spurs would probably work out nicely for everyone.
