Depending on where you look, Graham Potter is very much on a shortlist of the people “in-line” to be the next manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

Graham Potter is certainly on the shortlist to be Tottenham’s manager next season. He checks the box as someone with existing Premier League experience, who is relatively young for a coach (45), and he plays a progressive style of football many find attractive. For those reasons and more, Potter is the favorite for some.

Potter is fancied so much by some outlets, football.London simulated next season with Potter in charge, with Spurs finishing fourth. There are even rumors that Potter has support from some of the Tottenham players, which may or may not mean anything.

While Potter may have some advocates for his style of play and the opportunities it presents, there are some other reasons Graham Potter is likely not the right fit for Tottenham Hotspur. When it comes down to it, Potter is lacking both the success and production from a manager that they are looking for. Plus, Potter has one worrying trait that should scare Spurs fans.
