Two candidates to replace Graham Potter according to well connected journalist

February 21, 2023

Graham Potter’s job is safe – for now. That’s the main takeaway from Ben Jacobs’ exclusive on Simon Phillip’s Subsstack.

The well connected CBS journalist also says he won’t go into much detail on potential replacements for Pochettino as it’s “speculative and disrespectful.”

He then goes into some detail about the potential replacements for Potter, should the Chelsea boss be sacked. Jacobs says that Chelsea “considered” Mauricio Pochettino before eventually plumping for Potter, which shows he’s on the list.

Meanwhile Sporting Clube de Portugal manager Ruben Amorim is also “appreciated” by Todd Boehly and co, although it should be noted that his Sporting team are really struggling right now, and he’s not looking the hot property he did 12 months ago.

Zinedine Zidane is another name that Jacobs says will be mentioned – although Jacobs suggests that seems more likely as a media link given his profile, rather than anything with real weight behind it.
