Swansea City may be heading for a mid-table finish in the Championship this season, but that has not stopped Scottish giants Celtic considering Swans manager Graham Potter as their next permanent appointment, as reported in the print edition of the Sun on Sunday (April 14, Page 61).
Neil Lennon is currently in caretaker charge at Celtic Park and is also considered in the running for the post long-term, but Potter’s passing style and emphasis on youth may put the 43-year-old in pole position.
So would Potter be a good appointment at Celtic?
“I think Potter would be an excellent appointment for Celtic, as I believe that he’s one of the most underrated managers out there.
“I think everyone expected him to go into Swansea and walk the league with the players they had, but he’s has to work on a tight budget and he’s done a good job.
“Would he want to throw away the opportunity to make a name for himself in England though? I’m not sure.”
“This would be a smart appointment.
“Potter has already shown that he can improve a team, having turned around Swansea’s poor start to the season.
“He’s a manager that can make it to the very top, and I think Celtic would be making the right decision in appointing Potter as Rodgers’ long-term replacement.”
“A great long-term solution.
“Although, I do think Celtic should wait a few seasons before committing to someone like Potter who has only had one season managing in England so far.
“He’s proved to be a real revelation though and you get the feeling he’s going to the very top.”
