Darren Bent suggests Graham Potter for Tottenham Hotspur

Darren Bent has suggested that Brighton and Hove Albion boss Graham Potter would be a good managerial appointment for Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham have been looking for a new permanent manager since April when Jose Mourinho was sacked.

Mourinho, now in charge of Serie A club AS Roma, was sacked just days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Ryan Mason was placed in charge of the Tottenham first team until the end of the season.

The Premier League fixtures list for next season has already been released, but Spurs are still looking for a new manager.

Talks with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso in recent weeks have all broken down.

Former Tottenham striker Bent, who is a boyhood Arsenal fan, believes that Spurs should look at appointing Brighton boss Potter as their new manager.

Bent said on Euro GameDay Live on talkSPORT: “You know how much of a big fan I am of Potter. I have said before, I would take him at Arsenal.

“I think the football that he plays, with the players at Brighton. I think he’s exceptional.

“People will say ‘Oh, they haven’t scored many goals’. But he’s put that team in situations where they should have got so many more points because they create that many opportunities.

“If people don’t finish it off then I don’t think you can blame Potter. But I don’t think Tottenham can turn their noses up about him.”

Potter, who has been in charge of Brighton since 2019, is rated at 5/6 by Betfair to become the next permanent Tottenham manager.
