Football journalist Duncan Castles has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter replacing Nuno Espirito Santo at Tottenham Hotspur.
This comes after Castles co-hosted a recent edition of The Transfer Window Podcast, where he spoke about a variety of topics concerning a number of different clubs in the Premier League.
In the podcast, after Castles claimed that Spurs are already “considering replacements” for Espirito Santo, who is reportedly under pressure as a result of their recent run of form, the journalist had this to say about the possibility of Potter being one of the potential candidates to succeed him.
He said: “Graham Potter has been mentioned extensively and obviously has had a very good start to the season for Brighton.
“He fits a profile of coach that [Daniel] Levy has pursued in the past, of a young up-and-coming individual who has demonstrated his abilities at a lower-end Premier League club and is perceived to play the right way.
“But can you convince Potter, and can you convince Brighton to allow him to go at present?”
TIF Thoughts on Duncan Castles’ comments on Potter potentially replacing Espirito Santo at Spurs…
Taking into account how Brighton have won four out of their opening six league games of the season, drawing one and losing one, putting them in sixth place in the Premier League table with 13 points alongside the likes of Everton, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City, it’s easy to see why Potter has been mentioned as a potential replacement for Espirito Santo.
Who would you rather have in charge of Spurs?
Nuno Espirito Santo
However, given how it was recently reported that Potter apparently didn’t want to take the Spurs job before Espirito Santo was hired over the summer as he didn’t want to risk damaging his reputation working for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, we feel that, should Espirito Santo leave the club anytime soon, Potter will probably not be the person to replace him.
