Brighton manager Graham Potter touted as next Manchester United boss

Former Arsenal striker Paul Merson believes Manchester United should make Graham Potter their next coach.

Ralf Rangnick is currently in interim charge but they have seen little in the way of performance or results as they begin to lose touch in the race for the top four.

Fans are becoming more disgruntled with the club's situation and Merson thinks that Potter would be a good choice and fit for the club and it would be a step up from Brighton, where he manages now.

"I am a big fan of his," Merson told Sky Sports. "I think he plays brilliant football.

"If I was Manchester United, then I would be watching Potter. The way they play their football. They haven't got the quality of Man United players. And they play great football.

"If I was Man United. I would be monitoring him. I would think "why not go for him?"

Merson, however, doesn't see the Old Trafford club making a move for Potter as he won't be a big enough name for the managers role at such a club.

"They won't because he's not a name. It's as simple as that," Merson added.

"Then, the Man United fans will be like "why are we getting somebody from Brighton for?". And that's how it works. I think he's outstanding."

If United do want Potter, they could have to act fast, with Everton on the hunt for a new boss having sacked Rafael Benitez on Sunday.
