De Zerbi takes Brighton to historic European qualification

Italian coach Roberto De Zerbi has become a hero at Brighton and Hove Albion, taking the Premier League club into European football for the first time.
The side needed a victory against Southampton this afternoon to make it stick and achieved it with a 3-1 result that guarantees seventh place and at least a Conference League spot, but probably sixth too, as they have a vastly better goal difference than Aston Villa and now cannot be caught by Tottenham.

De Zerbi, who turns 44 next month, made his name at Benevento and Sassuolo before a brief experience at Shakhtar Donetsk was cut short by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

He signed for Brighton on September 18, stepping in when Chelsea had poached Graham Potter, but took them from strength to strength.

In all competition under De Zerbi, they amassed 19 victories, six draws and 12 defeats, qualifying for Europe and reaching the FA Cup semi-final, losing to Manchester United only on penalties.

De Zerbi has been linked with numerous jobs back in Italy, including Inter, Roma, Juventus and Napoli, but he seems determined to remain at Brighton.
There are not so many coaches that I rate above Inzaghi, but De Zerbi has huge potential. He beat Arsenal 3-0 while they were in the run for the title, while his days at Sassuolo are when they were playing their best football.

I know he has a big release clause in his contract and to be honest, for him it would not make too much sense to return to Italy, especially now that he is making a name for himself in the BPL.

I'm quite sceptical. I think Brighton were doing very well with their previous coach. Therefore he left for Chelsea, and they got De Zebri and now they are even better. It's not like he started from the scratch and did something exceptional. This is his first season as well. It could be a temporarily boost of form.

De zerbi is set for Premier League big clubs, do not think he will come back in Serie A and for sure not in this Inter that can't afford to buy players for his style.
If anything he would come for Napoli since Spalleti seems to be leaving

just feed De Zerbi with some primavera players and youngsters rather than gagliardini. it's not like Brighton gave him CR7, Messi, Neymar at his disposal. Their best player mitoma (this guy is very hot name for football lovers in our country) came from what? jupiler league?

I watched some Brighton games in and out this season, I see good stuffs, but not to a point where it impresses me to have a hard on for De Zerbi.
I am not doubting he evolved a bit comparing to his Sassuolo days; also I think there is a compatibility for managers and clubs, consider how Brighton run things, they are a good match, not too sure if it will work well if he comes to Inter. I really like Inzaghi for us, he is like Ancelotti for Milan back then. Inzaghi will grow with us.
