‘Something not right’ – Spurs legend does not want 45-year-old as next manager

Graham Roberts has urged Tottenham not to make Graham Potter the club’s next manager, insisting that the Brighton boss still has a lot to prove.

Potter is one of several names to have been linked with the Spurs hot-seat over the past few weeks and, according to Football.London’s Alasdair Gold, the 45-year-old is on the club’s shortlist of candidates earmarked for the role.

Gold has also revealed that Potter would be a popular choice among several members of the Spurs squad, who have been left impressed by the English coach’s set up with the Seagulls.

However, the former Ostersund boss is certainly not as high-profile a name of some of the other coaches linked with the job.

Some sources have claimed that Potter’s lack of experience managing a top club might count against him, with Daniel Levy prioritising experience over youthful potential while making the decision.

Roberts admitted that he has his doubts over whether the Brighton boss would be the right man for the job.

When asked about the speculation linking Potter with the Spurs job, the legendry centre-back told Football Fancast: “No, not for me.

“I think he’s done okay at Brighton, they beat Liverpool, but then lost to West Brom and Sheffield United.

“So to me that shows there’s something not right there.”

Potter has certainly done better than “okay” at Brighton. He has managed to get the best out of what is a bottom three squad in terms of quality. Anyone who has watched Brighton this season would also attest to the fact that they would at least be around 10th place in the table if they had half-decent finishers upfront.
