EPL: Premier League manager sacked after Man City won title

Brighton's manager Chris Hughton looks on during the English Premier League football match between Brighton and Hove Albion and Bournemouth at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, England April 13, 2019.

'People took my words out of context when [ex-West Brom manager] Darren Moore was sacked.

Hughton led Brighton to safety for the second consecutive season, as well as an FA Cup semi-final, but a run of just three wins in the last 23 games led the Seagulls board to relieve him of his duties.

A run of three wins from 23 league matches, dating back to December a year ago, left Brighton perilously close to the drop this season as they limped to 36 points, finishing one place and two points higher than Cardiff City who were relegated.

Despite Albion's poor form in the second half of the season, Hughton's sacking came as a surprise to many, so the experienced manager may well be a suitable replacement for Brendan Rodgers, who left the club back in February for Leicester City. It is with that in mind, and the performances during that period, that I now feel it's the right time for a change.

For Swansea's Graham Potter - or whoever gets the job - recruitment will need to improve sharply for Chris Hughton's dismissal to have a hope of success.

"Chris has done an excellent job over the past four and a half years", Bloom told the club's official website.

The Seagulls narrowly escaped relegation having finished 17th on the log with 36 points - two points better than Cardiff City who returned to the Championship after one season in the EPL.

Brighton's search for Hughton's successor is already underway and the club has declined to add any further comment.

"Chris will always be very fondly remembered by Albion staff and fans as one of our club's finest and most-respected managers".

"They will always be welcome at the Amex, and will be remembered here with great affection".
