Brighton striker Ferguson: De Zerbi strives for perfection
Evan Ferguson says he’s happily settled at Brighton.
The teenage striker is originally from Bohemains in Ireland.
“I was always coming over [to England] for trials,” he recalled to BBC Sport. “I came to Brighton and thought ‘that’s the club for me’.
“It was the people and the fact they showed a pathway – it made me feel as though it was the right club.
“I know some of the players have gone through the different leagues and stuff like that but I have only known Brighton being in the Premier League.”
Ferguson said of manager Roberto de Zerbi: “The manager strives for perfection. He is passionate and loves what he is doing.
“The way we play as well, you have to be tuned in. You have to know everyone’s position. As a striker, you have to do a few more different things which you might not have to do for a different team. But that is good. It gives you extra knowledge.”
