The world of the football recently saw surprised by the decision to separate ways between Roberto Of Zerbi and the Brighton & Hove Albion. Apparently, it went a decision with one accord that gave term to an association that began in 2022, when the native of Brescia (Italy) assumed the charge of trainer after the management of Graham Potter. This union was quite fruitful for the 'Seagulls', since during the period in which the Italian was in the bench attained to obtain a historical sixth position in the Premier (2022/23), what allowed them classify for the first time for a European competition, the Europe League.

After the announcement of this surprising decision, the rumours around his new destination futbolístico began to circulate with more strength. It is necessary to remember that the management of Of Zerbi in the Brighton did not happen unobserved for several European clubs of renown, like the FC Barcelona, the Bayern Munich and the Liverpool. These teams showed interested during long in doing of his services.

In front of this new stage, now that the exentrenador of the Sassuolo can negotiate his agreement like free agent, would not be descartable that any of these squares 'top' reavive his interest in him. Likewise, also it is possible that other combined join to the bidding by a technical director that surely will have a lot of beaux, converting like this in one of the big hosts of the coming market of incorporations estival.

Of Zerbi would prioritise to keep in a club of the Premier League

Now, although any cast could compete by him, the reality is that Of Zerbi seems to have some predilection for continuing his career like trainer in the Premier League. Like this it expressed it in back statements to the commitment between the Brighton and the Manchester United, that went his last meeting behind the technical direction of the 'Seagulls'. Lamentably, for him, it could not add a new victory in the American Express Community Stadium, falling 0-2 against the 'Network Devils'. However, in spite of this reverse, Roberto closed of positive way his historical register in the combined of the sureste of England, adding a total of 38 victories, 20 ties and 31 defeats in 89 clashes.

Going back to the subject of his future, when it questioned him about him, Of Zerbi was quite clear when mentioning that, at least by the moment, does not have any concrete offer on the table. Nevertheless, it expressed his preference for continuing working in England, without descartar other options. It said: "there is not any club, anybody has offered (at all). By the moment, at all. But I expect to go back to work in the Premier League. I do not know where neither when, but it went an honour work in the Premier League, an incredible opportunity. They gave me the opportunity to know this club, this city, these fans and all this that can not forget".

Although this no descarta the option to join to clubs like the Bayern Munich, that already has left clear that will not have Thomas Tuchel for the next season and that was interested in Of Zerbi, or to the FC Barcelona, that seems to have doubts on the continuity of Xavi Hernández in spite of having it ratified in the charge does less than a month, according to his statements, would not be surprising that the Italian prioritise the offers from the Premier League. However, the Liverpool, that seemed to be the most interested club in him in England, apparently no longer would be an option, since rumorea that Arne Slot will turn into his new trainer. It will be necessary to expect to see if some another club of the Premier League shows interest in this talentoso technical director.
