3 Graham Potter replacements Swansea must consider if he leaves for Brighton



After a hugely impressive season at the helm of Swansea City, Graham Potter is being targeted ahead of the summer window.

Reports from TEAMtalk claim that Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in appointing the 43-year old as their new manager.

The Seagulls parted company with Chris Hughton on Monday morning after only just avoiding the drop from the Premier League, and are now eyeing up a move for Potter.

Guiding Swansea to a 10th placed finish in the 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship table, it’s fair to say that Potter has done a shrewd job in his first job in English football, considering the restricted budgets at the Liberty Stadium.

But, with their star-man Dan James facing an uncertain future at the club, the Swans could be set to be dealt yet another blow in the close-season.

But if the worst happens for Swansea and Potter leaves for the AMEX Stadium, we take a look at three replacements that the Welsh club should consider…

Chris Hughton

If Brighton are looking to appoint Swansea’s boss, then why don’t Swansea look to appoint Brighton’s former boss?

The 60-year old has experience of getting promoted from the Championship twice, with both Newcastle and Brighton, and could be a shrewd replacement for Potter.

Some would say that he was harshly sacked by the Seagulls, but he could now be looking to get straight back into management.

Darren Moore

Another perfect option for Swansea could be Moore.

The 45-year old was sacked by West Brom in February, which divided opinions up and down the country given the fact that Albion sat within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots.

He has proven to be a fantastic coach, and could be a very good appointment.

Daniel Stendel

Stendel has done a magnificent job at the helm of Barnsley this season, guiding the Tykes to automatic promotion from League One.

The German has adjusted to life as a manager in England with ease, and certainly has a massive future ahead of him given the season he has had.

It would be a massive coup to lure him away from Oakwell, but Swansea are a big club who definitely have the pulling power to do so.
