Why Graham Potter will reject any approach to be new Leicester manager


With the help of some media reporting, Foxes of Leicester explain why former Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter would supposedly reject any proposal from LCFC to take over at King Power Stadium. Would the fans even want Potter as Leicester boss? The consensus appears pretty positive by the potential scenario of the 49-year-old at the helm.

In addition to looking at that possible eventuality, FoL also cover a separate rumour regarding the east Midlands side's ostensible hunt for a new gaffer. This includes what respected outlet The Times suggest on the matter. While speculation concerning another one of the west London outfit's ex-bosses arises. What would the Blue Army think about Maurizio Sarri? Well, we surveyed a section of them to find out about their thoughts on the Italian and the aforementioned Englishman.

Maurizio Sarri to Leicester City?

First of all, and importantly, The Times claim that the Leicester hierarchy are in no rush to nominate their new team leader. The Foxes shall indeed take their time to appoint a new manager. But why? Well, this could be due to Profit and Sustainability Rule breaking allegations. Not to mention a desperate need for the appropriate person with a worry of becoming a so-called yo-yo club.

One-time Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is apparently on the shortlist for the big job in Leicestershire. Sarri departed the Blues and the UK rather unceremoniously, yet there is no doubting his coaching abilities.

However, while CFC keep everybody waiting in confirming their appointment of Enzo Maresca at Stamford Bridge, a fresh report states that Sarri has snubbed Leicester. The latter is arguably wanted by fewer of the faithful.

Graham Potter thought to be 'aiming higher' than taking control at LCFC

Potter was another highly rated manager who didn't do too well at Chelsea. Granted he wasn't given much of a chance to show what he could do and assemble a great squad in his own reflection. Though many supporters at the Bridge and around the globe were not overly supportive of the ex-Brighton man, nor his tactics, strategies and stratagems.

Although, Potter created a fine Seagulls roster which played some sublime football. Nobody can deny the entertainment of his past side. To be fair, the level and capabilities at the Amex are probably fairly similar to that of the King Power.

But all of this may be irrelevant now. That is because Potter is said to desire the England National Team role, or Manchester United at least.
