|Brighton manager Gus Poyet has admitted that despite his affiliation with Chelsea and Arsenal, he would love to manage Arsenal one day.|
Poyet played for both Chelsea and Tottenham. He helped the Blues win the FA Cup and he scored 14 goals in his debut season for Spurs.
He worked alongside Dennis Wise at Swindon and Leeds after he retired from playing. He joined Tottenham as their back room staff.
He left Tottenham after Ramos was sacked and he took over the Brighton job one year later. He won the LMA League Manager of the Year award in his first year and has been highly successful at the club.
Brighton are seventh in the Championship right now and Poyet has admitted that he would love t manager a top Premier League team like Arsenal.
“I want to manage at the highest level and would love to manage Chelsea or Arsenal. Why not?” Poyet told the Evening Standard.
“Does my Chelsea or Tottenham past mean I cannot be Arsenal manager? Look, I’ve been at Leeds and the relationship between Leeds and Chelsea was not the best. If you ask any Leeds fan, my relationship with them was absolutely exceptional.”
Poyet’s side will face Arsenal in the 4th round of the FA Cup and he will look forward to impress the club with his qualities then.
“They’ve got plenty of weaknesses,” added Poyet. “So, can we defend against their strength and take advantage of their weaknesses? Against a top team, if you have a good day and they don’t have a very good day, maybe you win like we did against Newcastle [in the third round].”
Arsenal were beaten by Bradford in the Capital One Cup so Brighton des have a little chance here.
