The search for the next manager of Brighton Hove Albion is in full swing at the Amex stadium

In a ruthless move, that reeks of Chelsea under the Abramovic era, new Chelsea owners have fired their head coach Thomas Tuchel. However, the head coach was swiftly replaced by now ex-Brighton head coach, Graham Potter. Graham Potter has had a brilliant run with Brighton Hove Albion in the three years of his managerial stint. He helped the Seagulls achieve their highest-ever Premier League goal tally of 42 in the 2021-22 season. Moreover, he also helped the Seagulls achieve their record-breaking 10th place finish in the same season. As such, the loss of such an impactful manager is sure to hit the Seagulls hard, However, no such indications are on display at the Amex Stadium as the Seagulls search for a managerial replacement.

Brighton have had a great start to the season. The Seagulls have had just one defeat in the five matches so far. They are currently fourth in the League. The Seagulls will be determined to not let a change in the manager derail their chance at a top 6. However, it is worth noting that Brighton’s upper management has had a contingency for this situation. Following the departure of Graham Potter, Brighton now considers the manager of River Plate, Marcelo Gallardo, as a possible replacement.

According to Express Sports, Brighton have an ‘incredibly high volume of interest’ in Marcelo Gallardo. Gallardo will be out of contract in the next season. Although Gallardo prefers short-term stints, he has hinted that he will be willing to take up long-term management if a suitable opportunity presents itself. This is music to the ears of Brighton Hove Albion. Along with Gallardo, Ranger manager Ange Postecoglou is also a possible name who the Brighton upper management considers a good replacement.
