FootballBrighton & Hove Albion As the club prepares for a new era, new head coach Roberto De Zerbi was scheduled to meet with captain Lewis Dunk yesterday. Thursday, September 22, 2022, 10:18 a.m. Thursday, September 22, 2022, 10:21 a.m. Brighton captain Lewis Dunk and veteran midfielder Adam Lallana prepare for life under new manager Roberto De Zerbi. De Zerbi appeared calm and focused as he was introduced to the media earlier this week, and he expressed his admiration for Albion’s squad of players. The Italian, who arrived on a four-year contract following Graham Potter’s departure to Chelsea, admits he is not looking to make wholesale changes to a fourth-placed Premier League team. De Zerbi is known for developing young players, but he also emphasizes the importance of Albion’s senior players such as Lewis Dunk, Pascal Gross, Adam Lallana, and Danny Welbeck. “All of the names you mentioned are excellent, but I do not divide the players by age. Is it a question of whether they are good or not? I’ve watched a lot of our recent games and studied the players individually “We have a lot of quality players, so we try to put them in the best conditions in terms of performance, such as playing one-on-one or attacking in the right way, so that everyone can play his best and when we don’t have the ball, we take it [back] as quickly as we can.” Despite Albion’s lofty position, De Zerbi insists there is still room for improvement ahead of a testy October schedule that includes games against Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester City. “There is always something to improve,” said the former Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk manager. “I’ll bring something without making major changes, but it’s always possible to improve, and that’s my goal.”” Working in the world’s most important league is a huge challenge. I’m proud to be here, in a club that hasn’t been in the Premier League for a long time but has a clear plan of action. “I am modest, but I will bring my personality and experiences with me. We have a lot of talented players, and I know we can work well together.”
