Graham Potter named new Brighton manager to replace sacked Hughton



– Graham Potter has been named new Brighton & Hove Albion new manager

– The 44-year-old signed a 4-year-deal with the Seagulls after arriving from Swansea City

– Potter helped Swansea finish tenth on the Championship table

Premier League outfit Brighton & Hove Albion have appointed Graham Potter as their new head coach ahead of the new season.

The Seagulls terminated the contract of their former boss Chris Hughton after narrowly escaping relegation at the end of the recently concluded EPL season.

Hughton, 60, helped the Amex Stadium outfit gain promotion to the English topflight in the 2016–17 season, after finishing second on the EFL table a season before.

However, his side were not convincing in the league – gathering just 36 points from 38 matches – just two points above 18th placed Cardiff City at the end of the season.

The club have however taken a step to avoid such repeating itself when the 2019-20 season kicks off in about three months time.

Brighton announced on their official website that they have handed the former Swansea City coach a four-year-deal this month.

The Swans under Potter finished tenth on the Championship log in the recently concluded season.

Graham Potter has been appointed Brighton & Hove Albion’s new head coach with immediate effect, having agreed a four-year contract,” Brighton said on their website.
