The former Shakhtar Donetsk manager, Roberto De Zerbi, was appointed at the AMEX on a four-year contract on the 19th of September, 2022. He had left Ukrainian football due to the war with Russia. De Zerbi became the thirty-eighth Seagulls boss since 1901. The 43-year-old Italian is known for playing a progressive style of football based on possession of the ball. If another change happens on the South Coast, you can glean clues on who will be in the running via the next manager-to-be-sacked blog, along with the odds from all the leading bookmakers.

Best Betting Site for Next Brighton Manager Betting

There is a huge range of UK Bookmakers to choose from but only very few that offer next-manager betting, if at all - As we have covered every club management change over the seasons, looking for betting odds on who the next club manager will be, we have found the following betting sites to be the most reliable and quickest to get odds up for the next manager at most clubs

Who Will Be The Next Brighton and Hove Albion Manager

The board and owner Tony Bloom have shown the type of manager they like to appoint. I think Seagulls fans can expect "more of the same" when De Zerbi calls it a day or is poached by another European club.

Ruben Amorim

Before Unai Emery was appointed, Ruben Amorim had been heavily supported for the Aston Villa job. The current Sporting CP manager has been at the Lisbon club since March 2020. He guided the Portuguese outfit to their first Primera Liga title in 19 years in his first season. 

Graham Potter

If the board are pragmatic and the manager agreeable, then Graham Potter could return to the Amex. Of all the recent managers, it was Potter who enhanced their reputation as a side who were a joy to watch. Football managers do return (Zidane, Mourinho etc.), and if the timing is right, many fans will welcome back the man described by owner Tony Bloom as "an exceptional head coach and person". 

Xavi Alonso

Slightly more speculative is the former Liverpool and Spanish midfielder Xavi Alonso. We suspect he would at some time like to manage a club in England, having spent his best years as a player in this country. He is currently managing Bayer Leverkusen in Germany after three years with the Real Sociedad B team in Spain. 

Franck Haise 

The manager of French Ligue 1 side Lens has performed wonders with the club, after achieving promotion in the 2019/20 season. 

He has secured their status in the top tier with French legend Thierry Henry saying his Lens side was a contagious and impressive team. 

Lens is his first major job, but all football watchers have been impressed by their recruitment and dynamic style of play under a relatively unknown manager. 

Haise is on the radar of English clubs. 

Bo Svensson

The former central defender is currently in charge of German side Mainz.

Appointed in January 2021 in his first season the club finished in a respectable 8th place.

He said he was flattered by talk of him managing in the EPL. 

Kjetil Knutsen

The Norwegian was the initial favourite for the Brighton job before De Zerbi was appointed. 

We don't know whether Knutsen was interviewed but he is regularly quoted by bookmakers in managerial markets. 

The reason being is his current team FK Bodo/Glimt has won back-to-back Eliteserien titles in Norway and are now regularly seen playing in European club competitions, giving him and them a much higher profile.

Andrew Crofts

Crofts was the interim head coach between Graham Potter leaving and Roberto De Zerbi arriving. 

At under 40 and with limited big game experience it would be a stretch to see Crofts in charge, but the Brighton chairman took a chance on Graham Potter and look how well that worked out.
