Hughton praises Gyokeres development

first_imgSwedish forward Viktor Gyokeres recently joined Brighton and Hove Albion and he could make his debut today against AFC Bournemouth in the FA Cup.After playing three years with Swedish Superettan club Brommapojkarna, forward Viktor Gyokeres decided to move to Brighton and Hove Albion in the English Premier League.The decision meant the 20-year-old moved from the Second Division in his native Sweden to the First Division in England, a big change.That’s why he has not been ready to debut, until today where his team plays AFC Bournemouth in the FA Cup.Brad Smith is loving his time at MLS Manuel R. Medina – August 27, 2019 Smith has been loaned from AFC Bournemouth to Seattle Sounders for a whole season, and the Australian footballer is enjoying his time there.“Viktor [Gyokeres] has done well – he’s added to his game like Jurgen Locadia in some ways,” Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton told the club’s official website.“He can play as a number nine and that’s his strength, but because of Aaron Connolly doing well, Simon Rusk has used him on the left or sometimes as a ten.”“He’s got a little bit more variety and flexibility in where he can play now – he was with us in the pre-season period and played in a couple of the matches,” he added.“He’s developed really well and has good physicality for someone of his age – at this moment our thinking is more to keep him here than see him go out on loan.”last_img
