De Zerbi made it clear one day he will go back to Serie A

De Zerbi made positive changes at Brighton but turns out he has plans to go back to Italy.

The 43-year-old head coach of the Seagulls joined the club last year in September as a replacement for Graham Potter, the current Chelase head coach. Despite enjoying his time with The English club, De Zerbi announced the possibility of returning to Italy.

With Brighton, he managed to achieve memorable victories over Liverpool and Chelsea and now, It seems


is one of the clubs that intends to sign this Italian coach and in case Allegri leaves the old lady, Zerbi can be their main option.

In an interview with DAZN, Zarbi spoke about his coaching in the premier league:

“Coming here for an Italian is not easy because football is experienced differently, either you adapt or you lose at the start. And they don’t necessarily experience football that way."

“For example, they have a day off during the week, for them it is sacred, we see it as a lost day. They don’t do the retreat, they arrive three hours early at the camp."

“It feels like going on a picnic, then when the referee blows his whistle it always feels like playing a final.”

Then he spoke about this fact that he has not coached an Italian side yet:

“No, I don’t think things got stuck. I’ve always held Claudio Ranieri in high esteem, because he coached in France, Spain, England. And that’s something I’ve always liked.

“I chose to go to Ukraine, even though I also had something in Italy. There will be the right time to come back.”

De Zerbi added about the poor performance of Milan:

“I heard Maldini’s interview after the 


 game and he made the most correct analysis. Milan did not only do well last year that they won, but also in previous years.

“There always comes a rejection phase, a difficult phase. And there you have to grit your teeth and overcome it. It’s that phase that leads you to be champions in the true sense of the word.”

Finally he talked about the changes he have made since his arrival in the premier league:

“I had to change the method compared to when I was in Italy or Ukraine. More continuous training, less breaks, more playing. And a few more meetings to watch videos of things happening on the pitch.”
