Jones to remain temporary Brighton boss for Fulham trip

Nathan Jones will again be in charge of Brighton and Hove Albion temporarily when they head to Fulham on Monday night in Matchday 24 in the English Championship.

The former Seagulls defender was named interim boss in the wake of Sami Hyypia’s departure just before Christmas and watched his side draw 2-2 with Reading in the league on Boxing Day.

Brighton have already held talks with some of the candidates on their shortlist to succeed Hyypia, with former Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis and former Norwich City manager Chris Hughton reportedly the frontrunners.

Meanwhile, Jones, who was assistant to Hyypia and his predecessor Oscar Garcia, says he has no ambitions to land the top job on a permanent basis.

“What happens now is up to the board and the chairman to decide,” he said.

“I will plan for training and Fulham, until I hear otherwise from the board then that is what will happen.”

“I have got no personal ambitions with regards to the situation here, but I am very proud to be employed by Brighton & Hove Albion.”
