Jahanbakhsh's future at Brighton looks to be over

1. Alireza Jahanbakhsh and head coach Graham Potter

Graham Potter, the manager of Brighton Football Club recently announced that he understands the frustration of Iran international, Alireza Jahanbakhsh toward his lack of playing time. The Team Melli star has seen very limited playing time in his second season with the English side. In particular, since the arrival of new coach Graham Potter. Jahanbakhsh cost the seagulls around £20million in 2018, when he moved over from AZ Alkmaar, in Holland. At the time, the transfer fee broke Brighton’s record fee paid for a player. However, 28 games later and with only 2 goals to show, Jahanbakhsh hasn’t had the career he was after, in England. Potter, his manager, went on to say “He’ll be frustrated of course because he wants to play and I understand that,” said Potter.
