Liam Rosenior’s fate has been decided amid strong speculation rumouring him with the Middlesbrough job.
Despite Rosenior having no managerial experience, he is allegedly highly respected as a coach amongst his peers at Brighton.
He was later reported by The Sun to have been offered a coaching role by Middlesbrough, but this latest reports suggests that will not come to fruition.
The Sky pundit became a coach at Brighton last summer after he picked up his UEFA pro coaching license after his career was cut short by a recurring injury problems.
Rosenior will now be focussed on working with new head coach Graham Potter, who was appointed on May 20.
Brighton will be happy to keep onto a coach who is widely respected in football.
Colleagues tend to talk very highly of Liam Rosenior, and there’s no doubt that he will make a step into management sooner rather than later, but it just wasn’t meant to be at Boro.
While Rosenior would’ve probably wanted the big job at Boro, he may not have been keen to settle for anything lower there, especially when he seems happy doing his current role at Brighton.
This speculation is encouraging for Rosenior, though, who has been linked to one of the Championship’s biggest clubs without ever having a managerial role.
It bodes well for his future, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he was to leave at some point during this season for a Championship club calling his name.
