An English club is about to sign the youngest coach in the history of Premier League

Brighton’s management reached an agreement with a new coach to succeed Roberto De Zerbe in coaching the team, who quickly entered the history of the English Premier League.

De Zerbe had announced the end of his relationship with Brighton at the end of the past season after he failed to lead the team to European positions and the English club’s standards declined significantly with him.

Initial reports indicated earlier that Brighton’s closest option to succeed the Italian was to appoint former coach Graham Potter, but English newspapers confirmed that he rejected the offer.

According to recent reports, Brighton has completed an agreement with Fabian Hurzeler, who succeeded in leading St. Pauli to return to the Bundesliga and achieve the German second division last season.

Hurzeler will be the youngest coach in the history of the English Premier League ever, as he is only 31 years old.

The previous record for the youngest coach in the history of the Premier League goes back to Attilio Lombardo with Crystal Palace at the age of 32, while Ryan Mason was coach of Tottenham, but temporarily, at the age of 28.

It is noteworthy that Brighton will pay a large compensation to the St. Pauli management to allow the American coach to leave for England, as his contract is still extended in Germany until the summer of 2027.
