Man United and Chelsea on alert as De Zerbi wants Premier League return

After departing Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, former manager Roberto De Zerbi said that he would not be against the idea of going back to manage in the Premier League.

Graham Potter was replaced by De Zerbi when he joined Brighton in September 2022.

After securing the team’s highest Premier League finish of sixth and helping them qualify for European competition for the first time, the 44-year-old made an immediate impression.

In conversation with the BBC, De Zerbi said he would want to stay in England and that he currently doesn’t have another position lined up.

“There isn’t any club – no-one offered [anything]. At the moment, nothing,” De Zerbi said.

“I hope to work in the Premier League again. I don’t know where or when. But it was an honour to work in the Premier League.”

The Italian manager is considered one of the best young managers in Europe at the moment.

His success with Brighton has attracted interest from a number of clubs.

Journalist Anil Kandola claims that De Zerbi is admired by Manchester United.

Kandola posted on his X account about Man United’s interest in the 44-year-old manager:

“In light of the news Roberto De Zerbi will be leaving Brighton, do NOT be surprised if he’s linked with the Man United job over the next couple of days.

I’m told he has big admirers within the INEOS structure and fits the mould of what the new ownership are looking for…”
