Graham Potter rejects Leicester City approach

Less than 24 hours after being sacked by Chelsea, Graham Potter has received an approach to manage Premier League strugglers Leicester City following Brendan Rodgers’ dismissal.

According to TalkSPORT, Potter has rejected the approach and is set to take a break.

The 47-year-old suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Unai Emery’s Aston Villa on Sunday which ultimately turned out to be his final game in charge of the West London club.

The former Brighton and Hove Albion head coach was initially appointed back in September 2022 after Thomas Tuchel’s sacking.

He managed 31 matches in total, picking up an average of 1.46 points per game spanning across just under seven months.

Rodgers on the other hand enjoyed a four-year stay at the Foxes, winning both the FA Cup and Community Shield whilst guiding the East Midlands side to consecutive fifth-placed finishes.

A statement released by Leicester City on Sunday, read:

“Immediate responsibility for Men’s First Team training and match preparation will be led by the Club’s long-serving First Team Coaches Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell.”

The Foxes host Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.
