BREAKING NEWS ... BRIGHTON Have Sacked manager Chris Hughton .

Brighton sack manager Chris Hughton after Cardiff City's relegation rivals finish 17th


Monday 13th May 2019


Brighton have confirmed manager Chris Hughton has left the club following the Seagulls' 17th-place finish in the Premier League.

They won just three of their last 23 league games and none of their final nine.


The club, who were Cardiff City's closest relegation rivals, ended the campaign two points ahead of the Bluebirds , who now drop back into the Championship next season.

Brighton have now confirmed that Hughton has left the club with immediate effect, along with assistant Paul Trollope and first-team coach Paul Nevin.

The club say the time is "right time for a change", and say the decision has been made due to how the club struggled in the second half of the Premier League campaign.

The news comes after Brighton's 4-1 defeat to Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday.

CLUB STATEMENT: CHRIS HUGHTON

Brighton & Hove Albion have confirmed that Chris Hughton has left the club with immediate effect. Hughton’s assistant Paul Trollope and first-team coach Paul Nevin have also left.

Chairman Tony Bloom said, “Chris has done an excellent job over the past four and a half years. First stabilising our club, reaching the play-offs in his first full season, securing our first ever promotion to the Premier League, and retaining our status in two successive seasons.

“Undoubtedly, this has been one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make as chairman of Brighton & Hove Albion, but ultimately one I have made due to how we struggled in the second half of the season.

“Our run of 3 wins from 23 Premier League matches put our status at significant risk. It is with that in mind, and the performances during that period, that I now feel it’s the right time for a change.

“Chris will always be very fondly remembered by Albion staff and fans as one of our club’s finest and most-respected managers.
“I would like to wish Chris, Paul and Paul – who have all worked extremely hard throughout their time here – every success for the future, and thank them on behalf of everyone at the club.

“They will always be welcome at the Amex, and will be remembered here with great affection.”

The club have confirmed that the process to find Chris’s successor is underway, and that there will be no further comment at this stage.

They were very lucky to stay up.

Their brand of football was woeful. 2 good centre backs and park the bus.

He had to go.

Disappointing for Chris Hughton but no real shock after a season where, all things being equal, they were very lucky not to be relegated instead of us...

Sometimes a manager can through no fault of his own become 'stale' at a club and the players no longer respond. Along with some poor signings, this appears to have happened here

He almost came here (he was actually the favourite) before they chose 'Malky' a few seasons ago and I thin most were 'happy with that; but the mucked it up for himself when he pulled out a PowerPoint with another club's logo (Newcastle United?) at its head

Not a particularly good move! :laughing6:

Will be interesting to see who tase the job next but they need a 'butler', as Brighton will be sure to be back in the relegation mix next season

Really? :shock:

Not sure why I'm surprised though, as he's far exceeded expectations down west and his stock will certainly have risen

It certainly won't go down well with the 'fans' at The Library; although the owners may already be counting on their 'compo'

Another club that think they are bigger than they actually are. They will be in the relegation mix next season along with the newly promoted clubs

Are you implying that's what we have done? You obviously believe the media's portrayal of us.

Maybe the bookies covering themselves if a bit of money has come in. He's at 1/3 now but still very short.

Seems to be money coming in for Phil Neville.

Potter won’t be going anywhere. No idea why he’s favourite either.

Seriously, I don't know who will get the job and experience shows the 'early runners' don't always get the nod unless it's already sorted in advance of the actual sacking. Neville certainly in the frame, as is Mikel Arteta; although I'm not sure why the latter would want to leave Man City right now?

Adrian Durham summed it up neatly on his show yesterday when he asked "What has Graham Potter actually achieved with mid-table Swansea, who have relied on the talents of one player (Daniel James) who will almost certainly not be with them next season?"

But to be fair, ITK Carpe Diem has put all this to bed in one simple sentence... :thumbup: :ayatollah:

personally I thought he did a very good job.. outside chance of making the play offs going into the final month having lost almost an entire team ..and not all on the back of DJ either { the people that watch him are far less convinced than those that do not }.

Right decision in my opinion. I don't think he is a bad manager but sometimes changes are needed. Could only see them going down next season as thing stand.

they had 25 points by the half way point and were not really in relegation trouble until the last 5 or 6 games..yes they were crap 2nd half the season but realistically 37 points was always going to be a target a bit out of reach..
