The Spaniard has inherited the coaching reins at the Amex Stadium from Gus Poyet and is hoping to build on a productive 2012/13 campaign which saw the Seagulls finish fourth in the Championship.

The 40-year-old former Barcelona midfielder is taking in his first spell in English football and concedes that he will be looking to put his own stamp on things.

Part of that process will be bringing in players he feels can significantly aid the cause.

Garcia feels he may need a handful of signings in order to put Brighton back among the promotion challengers and says he will be spreading the transfer net far and wide in his pursuit of fresh faces.

He said: "We are missing four or five very good players and for sure we will look for replacements for them. We will try to pick the correct players to continue improving the team.

"I don't want to see the passport of the players, I want to judge them on their performances. The best players or the best choices for us will be the first XI, and each week we can change the first XI.

"It depends on how they are training, how they are playing and how we want to win the games.

"We have to see how we can punish the opposition. Our job is to choose the best XI to win every game."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
