Peter Brezovan: Contract at Brighton is running down

Peter Brezovan: Contract at Brighton is running down

The Slovakian shot-stopper has slipped to third choice at the Amex Stadium, behind Tomasz Kuszczak and Casper Ankergren.

He has, however, been welcomed back into the Seagulls' first team fold of late after seeing both of his rivals pick up knocks.

All three keepers are due to be out of contract at the end of the season, so are all playing for their future.

Brezovan admits that his preference would be to nail down a regular role at Brighton and remain on the south coast, but also concedes that an offer from a Championship rival may be too good to turn down.

He told The Argus: "It's hard because Brighton is a beautiful place and I love the people around here. It's not easy to go.

"If there was an offer from the same level, I would probably try it. Going to a lower division, getting injured and then to be there on the bench is risky."

For now, Brezovan is looking to make the most of an unexpected opportunity, with the 34-year-old delighted to be back on senior duty.

He added: "That's football. Things can happen quickly and it's beautiful.

"It shows how everyone is important. When you don't play for a long time, even in training, you start to think it's hard to motivate yourself.

"That's why you need good lads around you. I love the guys here. They always help you to be motivated.

"When you play and your contract is running out, you need to find that motivation."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
