Brighton manager Graham Potter’s savage response on being booed by fans after their draw against Leeds

Brighton & Hove Albion have had a terrific start to their ongoing Premier League campaign. They are currently seated comfortably on the 8th position of the points table, which is their best ever display in recent years and if they are able to keep this form running, the Seagulls can even compete for a spot in next season’s UEFA Conference league or even in the Europa League. Despite their brilliant performance so far, Brighton players were booed by their fans after yesterday’s 0-0 draw against Leeds United at home and it is something that has baffled their head coach Graham Potter.

Brighton might have lost 2 points in their clash against Leeds but the scoreline does not convey the entire story. Brighton were undeniably the better side last night and the statement can be supported by the match statistics. The Seagulls maintained 57% possession against Marcelo Bielsa’s men which is a big feat in itself and above that, they attempted 20 shots off which 4 were on target. They dominated Leeds in every phase of the game but were not lucky enough. That is the very reason why Graham Potter seemed surprised at full time on being booed by a portion of the fans.

Speaking about the incident in the post-match conference, the English manager was very straightforward. He said, “Well they are entitled to their opinion but I disagree with them completely.”

“You have to understand the game. You have to understand who we were playing against, how we played, what we did. I think we are sitting 8th in the Premier League but maybe I need a bit of a history lesson at this football club.”

Brighton have a tough fixture ahead as they take on West Ham and Southampton away from home in the next two Game-weeks. Positive results in those will be a perfect way for them to win back their fans’ support.
