ALBION EXTEND POTTER’S CONTRACT
Brighton & Hove Albion have extended the contract of
head coach Graham Potter to 2025, after his impressive start in the role.
Potter, along with assistant Billy Reid, first-team coach
Bjorn Hamberg and assistant head of recruitment Kyle Macaulay, have all also
agreed contract extensions to 2025. The trio joined Potter in moving from
Swansea City to Albion last summer.
Chairman Tony Bloom said, “We’ve been really pleased with
the start Graham has made as head coach since joining us in the summer, and I’m
delighted he and his staff have committed to these new long-term contracts.
“Together with his backroom team, he has continued the
club’s progress of recent years and brought a different approach with a new
style of play, which has been embraced by players and supporters alike.
“In the summer we unveiled a new long-term vision for us to
become an established top-ten Premier League club, and we feel even more
strongly that Graham as a bright, energetic and innovative head coach, is the
right man to lead us there.”
Potter added, “I’ve had a tremendous welcome from everyone
connected to the club — staff, players and fans — and have found it very easy
“The infrastructure, support and everything associated with
the club is first class, and I’m pleased with what we have been able to do
already, but there is still a way for us to go.
“I’m thrilled that the club have liked what they’ve seen so
far, in a relatively short period of time, and have already shown an added
confidence in what we are trying to do.
“I hope that this is just the start of what will be another
successful period in our history, and I’m extremely grateful that the club have
made this long-term commitment.”
