Coach Graham Potter (48) turned down the job as manager of the prestigious Rangers in the Scottish Premiership (SPL).
British media ‘The Sun’ reported on the 14th (Korean time), “The Rangers board approached manager Graham Potter, but he was not interested in discussing the position as Rangers manager.”
Rangers have been in a slump recently. Since the opening of the SPL, they have suffered two losses in four games, including a 0-1 loss in the ‘Old Firm Derby’ against their fateful rival Celtic.
Additionally, in the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League playoffs, they suffered a crushing 1-5 defeat in the second leg and failed to advance to the finals.
Accordingly, Rangers approached the agent of Coach Porter, who is currently unemployed, to change the situation.
However, Coach Porter had no intention of taking over as head coach. According to the media, Coach Porter has no desire to rush back to his current comfortable position and prefers to wait until the right situation and position arises.카지노사이트
Leicester City, which was relegated from the English Premier League (EPL) at the end of last season, also showed interest, and Olympique Lyonnais of France’s Ligue 1 also held talks with coach Porter. However, Coach Porter has not yet decided to return to football.
Coach Porter was suddenly appointed to Chelsea as manager Thomas Tuchel’s successor in September last year. He took charge of Brighton in the EPL and led a sensation, and was evaluated as a leading tactician, raising a lot of expectations.
However, contrary to expectations, the worst slump continued. Frustrating and disappointing performance continued, and after recording 7 wins, 7 draws, and 8 losses in the league, he was eventually dismissed in April, 7 months after taking office.
However, what Coach Porter showed still served as a foundation for him to be evaluated as a capable coach. Attention is focused on which team he will take on and make a spectacular comeback.
