Spurs are still searching for the enigmatic Portuguese manager’s replacement after Daniel Levy sacked the 58-year-old following a disappointing 17-month spell in charge of the north London outfit.
According to the Daily Mail, current Brighton and Hove Albion boss Potter is admired by the Tottenham technical performance director, and Hitchen’s list is the one that makes it to the club’s hierarchy, however, it seems as though the club’s supporters arent as keen.
“Hitchen should be on the boards shortlist to sack. (poor recruitment since Paul Mitchell left) I would never on my life let Hitchen have a say in any decision makings. The same goes for Lewis/Enic/Levy, gotta go. So much mess with coaches/players & run out of excuses.”
“I wouldn’t let Hitchen recommend me a book to read, let alone which manager we should go for. Another one that needs to go.”
“This is how far we have fallen.”
“Get hitchen out of the club immediately”
“Recommended by Hitchen? His recruitment history is hardly good is it! More likely the cheapest option.”
“Hitching not fit for purpose”
Potter is clearly seen as a below-par candidate after being involved in a season-long relation battle with the Seagulls this season.
