Brighton manager, Roberto De Zerbi has come out to claim that the club beating Manchester United in the Premier League did not come as a surprise to him. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the quality of his players and the organisation at the club is enough reason for him to believe his team can stand up to the big clubs in the EPL.
Roberto added that his players keep playing with courage, and they clearly deserved to win at Old Trafford.
His words, “Football is nice because the small team can win in every moment. I think Brighton is becoming not a big team, but it is not a surprise. The quality of the players and organisation of Brighton is very high. I don’t know the problems of Manchester United, but I can explain my team. We are used to working in our style, we are playing with courage, we defended at Old Trafford man-to-man all the time and we kept the ball in every situation. In the first half, we suffered a lot with the pressure, but after that, we played a great game.”
“We played a great, great game. We deserved to win, we played well. In the first 15, 20 minutes we suffered a lot because Man United played in a different way than we prepared for but after that, we played a great game. I think the game was changed when we kept the ball. In that moment their pressure was strong and to keep the ball helped us to control the game and then we have four attackers who are very fast and very good.”
