Graham Potter can take charge of Man United, but with two conditions

Manchester United are going through fluctuating form this season, so Ten Hag’s position at the top of the bench is starting to shake.

Journalist Alan Nixon has reported that Graham Potter could return to managing a team again this time by taking the helm at Man United.

The Englishman, who was recently sacked by Chelsea due to a lack of results, is currently awaiting an offer from Napoli, with the Serie A champions short-listed should they sack Rudi Garcia.

But there is also a chance the 48-year-old will take over at Man United. For this to happen, two things must happen. First, the Glazers family of current owners must accept an offer from Sir Jim Ratcliff to buy shares in the club; secondly, the joint Glazers/Ratcliffe team should decide to sack Erik ten Hag.

If they decide to part ways with the Dutchman, Ratcliffe has his eyes on Potter as a replacement.

The 48-year-old throughout his career as a coach has only managed clubs in the Premier League, as he made a big splash during his time in charge of Brighton, mainly because of the attacking football he applied.

It now remains to be seen whether Manchester United can continue with satisfactory results, in the event that they do not find a way out of the current situation, Potter is awaiting a call.
