BREAKING: Ex-Chelsea Boss, Graham Potter Becomes Leicester New Manager

BREAKING: Ex-Chelsea Boss, Graham Potter Becomes Leicester New Manager—–LEICESTER are close to appointing Graham Potter as their new manager.

 

Potter, 49, has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in April last year.

 

He has already rejected a number of opportunities to return to the dug-out.

 

However, the former Brighton and Swansea manager has held positive talks with the Leicester ownership.

 

And now he is keen to return to management with the newly-promoted club.

 

The Foxes won the Championship last season but were left without a manager after Enzo Maresca joined Potter’s former employers, Chelsea, earlier this month.

Leicester held talks with ex-Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper as well as West Brom manager Carlos Corberan.

But now they have decided on Potter as their preferred choice.

The club are facing financial issues, however, and could still start the season with a points deduction after breaching profit and sustainability rules in recent years.

And that would hand Potter a tough start to life in the Midlands.
