The Spaniard made 235 appearances for Brighton and Potter is delighted Bruno has agreed to take on a coaching role at the Amex Stadium. “I am aware of Bruno’s influence at the club over the years, both on and off the field, and we’re delighted he’s agreed to stay on in this new role,” he told the club’s official website.
“His familiarity with the club, the city and our fans, as well as his relationship with the existing players in our squad, will be extremely beneficial to me and the rest of the coaching staff.” Bruno’s main focus will be working with the first-team, but he will also mentor the under-23 squad and support players out on loan.
