Brighton defender Igor feels they’re capable of reaching the Champions League.
Igor made the move from Fiorentina over the summer.
He told the club’s website: “For me it was easy, everyone saw how well they did last season, I appreciate the idea of football from the coach (Roberto De Zerbi). He is Italian and he observed me for a long time.
“After the first chat with him I immediately wanted to come here. The Premier League is different from all the other leagues I’ve played in, it’s like a dream. Playing against Salah and Van Dijk is incredible, I trained a lot to get to these levels.
“In Italy they have always told me that I am suitable for the Premier League, given my physicality. I also chose Brighton for their game, the amount of possession, I like this football.”
Adding on last season’s Europa Conference League Final: “Yes, I am motivated after the defeat, without a doubt. That match stuck in my head, losing in the final seconds. This year I want to reach the Champions League and win the Europa League with Brighton.”
