Brighton boss De Zerbi delighted with victory at Sheffield Utd

Brighton boss Roberto de Zerbi was left pleased after their 5-0 win at Sheffield United.

Mason Holgate was sent off for the Blades early on before the visitors struck as Facundo Buonanotte, Danny Welbeck and Simon Adingra (2) struck. The Blades also conceded an own goal.

De Zerbi said: “I’m delighted for the performance. It wasn’t a real, real game because we played 75 minutes with the one player more. We are sorry for it because we would like to win 11 v 11.

“It’s not our business (the red cad), our business is to score and to play well and to be correct.

“I’ve not seen yet the situation, I can’t say anything. It can happen because in the game at the Amex we finished the game with one player less. I know very well what it is like playing with a player less.

“Anyway I don’t want to speak of the red card because I don’t believe, I don’t agree with that.

“We played with the right mentality, especially in the second half. We didn’t concede counter-attacks. Sometimes you can lose if you are playing one player more. Football is strange, you can open the game when you think the game is closed.

“We are happy for [Simon] Adingra and [Kaoru] Mitoma. We missed them both a lot. We played without natural wingers. And so I am very happy when all my players are available.”
