Roberto de Zerbi says ‘I’ve had no offers’ amid rumoured Juventus interest

Italian keen to work in Premier League again in the future

Roberto De Zerbi

Outgoing Brighton boss Roberto de Zerbi insists he has not been offered another job – yet.

The Seagulls announced the Italian would be leaving the club after Sunday’s match against Manchester United at the Amex, which the visitors won 2-0.

The 44-year-old had been linked with a host of big jobs across Europe, including Juventus, Liverpool and Bayern Munich but after the game de Zerbi told BBC Sport: “At the moment, nothing. There isn’t any club – no-one offered (a deal).”

The former Shakhtar Donetsk coach joined Brighton in the wake of Graham Potter’s departure in September 2022 but is less than halfway through a four-year deal.

“I hope to work in the Premier League again. I don’t know where or when. It’s an honour to work in the Premier League,” he added.

De Zerbi steered the south coast side to the top-six last season and the last-16 of the Europa League in their first ever European campaign this term, with memorable wins over Ajax and Marseille along the way before a 4-1 aggregate exit to Roma.

Brighton have been linked with Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna as they bid to make a swift appointment.
