Brighton appoint Italian Roberto de Zerbi as manager
Brighton have named Italian Roberto de Zerbi as their new manager. The 43-year-old has been out of work after leaving Shakhtar in July due to the Ukraine war.
He’s signed a four-year contract with Brighton, subject to a work permit.
He was Brighton’s first choice to replace Graham Potter – who quit to take over from Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea this month.
Depending on work permits, the new manager looks set on bringing his coaching staff with him.
It’s hoped the new coaches will be in place before Brighton’s next match against Liverpool at Anfield on 1 October.
