Next Brighton & Hove Albion Manager Odds: St. Pauli boss Fabian Hurzeler new 10/11 favourite

After Brighton & Hove Albion announced that Roberto De Zerbi would be vacating his managerial role, we've priced up the who could replace the Italian at the Amex Stadium.

The 44-year-old Italian joined the Seagulls in September 2022, and helped guide the club to their highest-ever top-flight finish of sixth.

However, despite Brighton's mid-table Premier League finish, and a run to the last 16 of the Europa League, De Zerbi departed the club following the end of the season.

But who could be primed to take over the reigns at the Amex Stadium?

Kieran McKenna was the initial favourite for the role after guiding Ipswich Town to the Premier League, but the Northern Irishman has now penned a new deal to remain at Portman Road.

Graham Potter then became the new frontrunner for the vacant position, having served as Brighton's manager between 2019 and 2022 before departing for Chelsea.

But the former boss has since ruled himself out of a return to the Amex Stadium, with the 49-year-old still carefully considering his options as he determines his next move.

Fabian Hurzeler is now the current favourite to take the reins, with the Houston-born coach emerging as one of Europe's highly-rated coaching prospects after guiding St. Pauli to promotion into the Bundesliga.

The 31-year-old had no prior managerial experience and was without a UEFA Pro Licence before being appointed head coach at the Millerntor Stadion in December 2022 but he's been a revelation in Hamburg, guiding St. Pauli to a club record win streak in his first season before orchestrating their promotion in his first full campaign.

Next in the betting is Henrik Rydstrom, who is one of Europe's most innovative coaches with a unique, street-style of football.

He oversaw Malmo's title triumph last season and his side are currently top of the Allsvenskan by a considerable margin after just a third of the campaign.

Other potential candidates for the Brighton job include Steve Cooper, Southampton boss Russell Martin, FC Copenhagen manager Jacob Neestrup and former Seagulls player Liam Rosenior.
