Brighton and Hove Albion manager Roberto De Zerbi has insisted he has no firm intention of leaving this summer, despite consistent speculation about his future.

The Seagulls boss has been speaking to Bobo TV in Italy where he made it clear his future lies in England for the time being.

The Italian coach has seen his stock rise since taking charge of Brighton after Graham Potter’s move to Chelsea.

A superb first season that saw them qualify for European football for the first time has been followed by a more difficult year this time around as injuries and the departures of key players such as Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister has made life difficult.

His reputation has not taken much of a hit though and with several big jobs on offer this summer, including Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Barcelona, the Brighton coach has found himself linked with a move away.

De Zerbi has also added to that speculation by publicly refusing to sign a new deal and instead insisting he needs to sit down with those in charge at Brighton to ensure their ambitions and plans still align.

He, though, has now seemingly changed tact and insisted there is no club in the world that could tempt him to break the commitment he made to leave the Premier League.

“I love Italy and our football,” he said.

“I feel good in England, in the Premier League and I have no intention of leaving. There is no team that can change my mind, I have made a commitment. I like being outside and experiencing the atmosphere of the stadium.

“Furthermore, in England I have the opportunity to improve my knowledge of the language and football.”
