Here’s Graham Potter’s next coaching job – after being sacked by Chelsea

Graham Potter was sacked by Chelsea earlier this spring.
Since then, the Swedish acquaintance has been unemployed.
Now his next coaching job is pointed out by reputable L’Équipe.

The big breakthrough came with small Östersunds FK which Graham Potter took from the lower divisions in Sweden and out into Europe. ÖFK went all the way to the Europa League group stage and then on to the playoffs where they faced Arsenal themselves.

Potter’s smash hit

Football Europe caught the eye of the successful coach and above all his home country England attracted. It would then be another great success for Potter, who helped build little Brighton into the top club they are today and challenge the giants in the Premier League.

Then came the big dream move when the big club Chelsea got in touch and made the Englishman the new head coach of the multi-billion building. Although it started decently, the start of 2023 turned out to be nightmarish for both Chelsea and Graham Potter who underperformed significantly for an extended period of time.

New coaching job

Actually, Nice owner Ineos wanted the current Brighton coach Roberto De Zerbi but he refuses to leave the successful club at the moment. Other names that have been mentioned are Thiago Motta, Frank Haise and Regis Le Bris but it is the Englishman who is the main candidate.

But the signing of Graham Potter will drag on due to owners Ineos trying to buy into Manchester United as well. But the plan is to get Potter in place as the new coach for next season, according to L’Équipe.
