Roberto De Zerbi will leave Brighton & Hove Albion by mutual consent, the club has announced.

De Zerbi joined the club for the 2022/23 season following the departure of Graham Potter to Chelsea.

The Seagulls finished sixth in De Zerbi's first season in charge, earning a place in the Europa League.

This year has been tougher for Brighton but they could still finish in the top half of the season and a win against Manchester United in what will now be the Italian manager's final Brighton game would ensure a 10th place finish.

"I am very sad to be leaving Brighton," De Zerbi said in a statement. "But I am very proud of what my players and staff have achieved with the support of everyone at the club and our amazing fans in the past two historical seasons.

"We have agreed to end my time at Brighton so that the club and I can continue to work in the way that suits each of us best, following our own ideas and visions, as well as our work and human values.

"I have really enjoyed an intense and challenging two years working in the Premier League, not least competing in four major competitions this season. Leaving now provides me with time to take a break before deciding on my future plans."

As a football fan, I am disappointed to hear that Roberto De Zerbi will be leaving Brighton by mutual consent. He has done a fantastic job with the team, leading them to a sixth place finish and a spot in the Europa League. Although this season has been tougher, a top half finish is still within reach and a win against Manchester United would be a great end to his time at the club. Sad to see him go, but proud of what he has achieved with the support of

As a football fan, I am devastated to hear that De Zerbi will be leaving Brighton. He has been a fantastic manager and has brought so much success to the club in just two seasons. It's a shame to see him go, but I am grateful for all that he has done for the team. Thank you for everything, De Zerbi.
