Brighton defeated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they continue their chase for European football.

Goals from Danny Welbeck and Julio Enciso secured a comeback for the Seagulls after going a goal down in the 13th minute of the first half. The win leaves them 13th on the league table, one point behind Aston Villa in sixth position.

According to recent claims made by football analyst Chris Sutton, Roberto De Zerbi, the manager of Brighton, would accept the position if it was offered by Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

De Zerbi among potential candidates

De Zerbi has emerged as one of the potential candidates to replace Antonio Conte, who was recently sacked by Tottenham. 

The Brighton manager’s outstanding work at Brighton has made him a sought-after figure around Europe, despite the likes of Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique being thought to be favourites for the position.

The Italian manager had a huge influence in a short period of time during his excellent tenure at Brighton. He has them competing for a spot in Europe and led them to the FA Cup semi-final, where they will face Manchester United for a spot in the final.

De Zerbi a perfect fit for Spurs

Attacking is De Zerbi's preferred style of play, which is ideal for Tottenham's present lineup. He is renowned for his capacity to mould young players, which Tottenham sorely needs. 

Speaking about the situation, Chris Sutton said, “He is going to go to Tottenham. If they offer him the job, he is going to go to Tottenham”

De Zerbi would be a perfect match for Tottenham, that much is certain. He possesses the expertise and tactical understanding to advance Tottenham.
