On the “What the Footie” show, Paul Barber, the CEO of Brighton, said that he regretted answering Todd Boehly’s call about Graham Potter earlier this season.
When Thomas Tuchel was fired early in the season, Chelsea’s owner made getting an Englishman to replace him his top priority
Even though they gave the manager who won the Champions League a lot of support during the summer transfer window, it only took seven games for the Americans to want a new manager.
But things have not gone nicely since Potter joined the team. Up until recently.
Barber has still said that he is upset that his old coach is now in charge of the Blues.
Barber is sorry that he took Boehly’s call
He said, “Todd Boehly will never call you at 7:30 on a Tuesday morning to invite you to breakfast.” Graham did a great job, and it was a pleasure to work with him. Also, when someone does well, their name goes up, and other clubs start keeping an eye on them. You can be sure that requests will come sooner rather than later.
I answered it without thinking about what I was getting myself into because I was a little sleepy that morning. I soon found out I had fallen into Todd’s trap. We had been looking at Roberto [De Zerbi] from this point of view for about two years.
Since Potter left, the Seagulls’ chances have stayed good, and last weekend the coach they brought in as a replacement led them to an FA Cup quarterfinal.
Word on the street is that Barber might get more texts from Boehly this summe as the Blues are said to be interested in Moises Caicedo and Alexis MacAllister, a centre pair
