Brighton boss Graham Potter revealed he feels sorry for football fans who have to deal with false headlines and constant speculation. Potter said so after he has been linked with the Newcastle job following their takeover. Steve Bruce’s job as the head coach seems in jeopardy after the takeover of Newcastle by a Saudi-based consortium. Brighton have had one of their best starts to a season under Potter. The 46-year-old has clearly said there is little interest from him and it was all media noise.
All it is his an opinion,” Brighton boss Graham Potter said. “A lot of it is not true. It’s just what it is. I feel a little bit for the supporters because they have to read speculation or they have to read false headlines that aren’t correct. But I think most people understand that’s just the world we’re in. t was probably less than a year ago that there was a lot of the opposite noise around whether you’re doing a good job, or whether it’s time to move on for me, that type of stuff.”
“From a points perspective, we’ve done well this year so far but we’ve (only) played seven matches,” he added. “This time last year we’d played seven matches and probably our performances were as good as they are now – the difference is we’ve got the points. And obviously, we’re in a world where it’s quite simplistic: if you win, you’re good; if you lose, you’re bad.”
