You’re sponsored by Guardiola, third tier – Capello slams Brighton boss

Italian managerial legend, Fabio Capello, has hit out at Brighton boss Roberto de Zerbi, calling him “third tier”.

De Zerbi joined the Premier League side in September 2022, leading them to a sixth-place finish and the semi-finals of the FA Cup so far, but the Seagulls have struggled under him this season.

They currently sit in 10th place with two games left.

Brighton was also eliminated from the FA Cup in the fifth round, knocked out of the Carabao Cup in their first game and failed to get past the last 16 in the UEFA Europa League.

“I would put De Zerbi in the third tier.

“There is a lot of talk about him as one of the top coaches because Guardiola sponsors him, but this year he is tenth or eleventh in the standings.

“What has he won in his career? Let’s look at his CV: he has only won one cup in Ukraine,” Capello told Sky Sports.
