Brighton confirm appointment of new manager

The Seagulls have announced a deal for Graham Potter’s replacement

Premier League outfit Brighton & Hove Albion have, on Sunday, unveiled the latest instillation on the club’s bench.

The situation on the touchline at the Amex Stadium, of course, took its place front and centre in the headlines over the course of the last couple of weeks.

This came after beloved boss Graham Potter came to the decision to move on, linking up with English top-flight rivals Chelsea on the back of the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel.

On the back of a strong opening to the campaign, the powers that be on England’s south coast were, in turn, left with a major decision to make.

And now, as alluded to above, as much has been made.

In a post across the club’s social media platforms on Sunday evening, Brighton have confirmed the appointment of Roberto De Zerbi as their new head coach.

Italian tactician De Zerbi is fresh off a successful stint in Ukraine, where he took charge of Shakhtar Donetsk prior to Russia’s invasion of the country.

The 43-year-old, it is understood, has committed to terms at the Amex through the summer of 2026.
