Brighton and Hove Albion CEO, Paul Barber, has made a humorous comment about Chelsea potentially targeting the club’s cleaning staff next. Brighton has risen up the Premier League table over the past few years, impressing Chelsea owner Todd Boehly, who hired Graham Potter to replace Thomas Tuchel. The Blues have also spent £62m on Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella and pinched six backroom staff members from the Amex, including four coaches and two scouts. Chelsea has been linked with several Brighton stars, including Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister, and some reports suggest Roberto De Zerbi is an option to take over from Potter at Stamford Bridge. Barber is happy to discuss player sales but admits he is less keen when Chelsea calls him for staff members. He joked that Boehly could be headhunting Brighton’s cleaning team next. Barber believes that a club of Brighton’s size can only compete if it trades well, finding players that other clubs are not finding and developing them well before selling them on at a profit.
