De Zerbi’s Brighton exit announcement came as a massive surprise to the footballing world.


The Italian has been linked with multiple top clubs including Harry Kane’s Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

However, the Italian has confirmed that he does not have a managerial job lined up for next season and confirmed that he is ready to spend some time away from the game.

Speaking to the media, De Zerbi said (via BBC): “There isn’t any club – no one offered (anything).

“At the moment, nothing. 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.”

On why he left Brighton: “We didn’t find the agreement to move on.

“I want to keep my way.

“I know very well what I want to do and I know I am a coach and I have to accept the policies of the club.


“They gave me an incredible chance.

“They give me the possibility to know incredible people, to play and to work in the Premier League, to play in the Europa League.


“Also, they gave me the opportunity to know this club, this city, these fans and for that I cannot forget.”
