“I thoroughly enjoyed my four-and-a-half years managing this special football club.
“I would like to put on record my gratitude to my coaching staff, the players, fans, everyone connected to the club and the wider community of Brighton & Hove and wish them luck for the future.”
It was a good decision made badly, really.
Plus Graham Potter sounds like a top bloke.
