Everton podcaster Barry Cass has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter being appointed as the new manager at Goodison Park.
This comes after Cass made an appearance on a recent video from the Toffee TV YouTube channel where he spoke about who could potentially be named as the club’s new manager after Carlo Ancelotti left for a return to Real Madrid.
It is thought that Potter is still ‘in the frame’ for the vacant hotseat at Goodison Park, as per the Daily Mail.
On the subject of Potter potentially being named as Everton’s new manager, Cass had this to say on the possibility.
He said: “I said before, Graham Potter is the one for me if you’re trying to change the way the club is.
“And I wouldn’t have said this two and a half weeks ago, you know I wouldn’t have done. I think he’s a bright young manager, but I would have gone, ‘nah, not for us.’”
Potter was appointed as Brighton’s manager back in May 2019 and has since gone on to take charge of 85 games with the Seagulls, winning 23, drawing 28 and losing 34 along the way (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Barry Cass’ comments on Potter potentially being named as Everton’s new manager…
With Potter only having two seasons of experience managing in the Premier League with Brighton where he’s failed to get them higher than a 15th-place league finish, this probably wouldn’t put him in the running to be named as Everton’s new manager, in our view, especially with the club’s ambitions to play in Europe.
Would you take Graham Potter at Everton?
However, with Brighton managing to concede fewer goals (46) than Everton (48) did by the end of the 2020/21 season, perhaps appointing Potter could help the Toffees fix up in the defensive area in the short term rather than seeing him predominantly as the person to take the club into Europe on a long-term vision.
