The former Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk coach has agreed to become the new Brighton manager and will now face the Premier League. And with all the criticism that is coming after the choice of the club …

    When Chelsea brought Graham Potter to Stamford Bridge, Brighton certainly did not lose heart. Collected the over 20 million euros to free the coach, the Seagulls immediately began looking for their new coach and found him: Roberto De Zerbi. Former Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk has accepted the post and will now face the Premier League. And with all the criticisms that are coming after the choice of the club.

    One of De Zerbi’s main “enemies” is Graeme Souness. The former midfielder spoke to TalkSport and explained why in his opinion Brighton have taken the longest step. Even claiming that the technician may … have deceived the management. “I think it’s a risk, they took someone who doesn’t know our football.

But they have chosen a manager who he has never faced English football, which knows nothing of the Premier League, which does not know footballers. He will need people who know football to help him. And it’s a big risk. ” Of course, perhaps Souness should be told that not even Klopp, Conte or Mourinho knew the Premier. And probably, no one has even used Google …
