Brighton & Hove Albion would have decided on the perfect candidate to fill the rest of the bench following his departure from Chelsea Graham Potter. According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the ‘Seagulls’ are negotiating with Roberto De Zerbi. There are still major points to discuss with the Italian coach, but he is seen as the right man to replace Potter for him offensive football -following a line similar to that of the English coach-, his commitment to young people and his good results.
De Zerbi, 43, spent most of his career in Italy, where he coached in Serie A in Palermo, Benevento and Sassuolo, while last season he managed Shakhtar Donetsk. It was in Sassuolo that the former Brescia and Napoli footballer, among others, gained his greatest fame by managing to keep the mediocre Emilia-Romagna team in Serie A for three seasons and with solvency.
Although De Zerbi is currently the best place, the English newspaper ‘The Guardian’ confirmed these days that there are other names on Brighton’s agenda such as the French Frank Kaise, currently coach of a Lens that was promoted to Ligue 1 in 2020, managing to keep him in the elite of French football ever since. Brighton would have thought of the Norwegian too Kjetil Knutsen, of Bodo/Glimt, which he rose to the highest category of Norway in 2017 to lead him to win, among other merits, two Leagues in these five years and, above all, in the resounding victory against Rome last year in Conference League (6-1).
The ‘Seagulls’, along with the subsidiary coach, Andrew Crofts, as caretaker manager, is in no rush to lock down Graham Potter’s replacement. Not in vain, they rest on this day -the fight against the fight Crystal palace was postponed due to a rail strike-, and, with the selection break, they will not compete again until Saturday, October 1, when they receive the Liverpool.
