Leandro Trossard goes to war against Brighton

The case of Leandro Trossard is surprising. Sent back to the bench in the last matches and even removed from the group during collective training this Friday, Leandro Trossard (28) has seen his adventure in Brighton go wrong in just a few weeks, since his return from the 2022 World Cup, with the Belgians. A situation that is surprising for the striker, who had had an excellent start to the season with the Seagulls.

His trainer, Roberto De Zerbi, did not hesitate to break the silence and break the ice during his press conference this Friday. “In the last training before the match against Middlesbrough, when he understood that he would not play, he left the session without telling me anything. And it’s not good. The following Monday, I spoke with him and I explained to him this attitude, this behavior, I do not like”he explained. “He knows if he wants to play for Brighton with me he has to work hard, he has to run and go the right way because we’re not a big team like Real Madrid, Barcelona or any other big club. We are Brighton, we need players who work for others..

“A transfer would be the most reasonable solution”

To defuse the controversy, his agent, José Comhair charged the Italian technician behavior. “Before Leandro left for Qatar, there was talk of extending his contract. But no agreement was reached. On his return from the World Cup, Leandro had an altercation with a teammate. Since then, the coach hasn’t spoken to him anymore (…) The coach hasn’t spoken to Leandro for 4 weeks now, it’s incomprehensible. But he is the first to recognize that a transfer would be the most reasonable solution. It is essential that Brighton cooperate to find a solution beneficial to all from this transfer window.is it explained in a press release.

While the transfer window is open today, Leandro Trossard is not in the squad to face Liverpool on Saturday. “Leandro is not in the group. He knows my opinion perfectly. I don’t know if he wants to change teams, I’m the coach, only the coach, I don’t take care of the transfer window, other teams or negotiations. I don’t know what the problem is”. Trossard and the Seagulls, the adventure therefore seems soon to be over, while the name of Tottenham has been cited in the English press as a possible destination for the international Red Devils.
