Brett leaves Brighton after a decade as part of performance revamp
Written by Simon Austin —
HEAD of Medical and Performance Adam Brett has left Brighton after a decade as part of a club revamp of the department.
Brett joined the Seagulls in February 2014 as Head Physio and was promoted to department chief in July 2020, replacing Tom Barnden.
He has now exited, as Sporting Director David Weir and Head Coach Roberto Di Zerbi oversee a revamp. Club doctor Vicann During, who joined Brighton in January, has also departed, while Performance Manager Will Abbott has been appointed Director of Performance at Charlton.
Joshua Hook remains as Performance Manager, working closely with the men’s first team (Abbott had a more strategic role), as does fitness coach Agostino Faustino, who is one of Di Zerbi’s long-time assistants.
Tibaudi worked alongside Di Zerbi at Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk and has also served on the staff of Chelsea (with Claudio Ranieri) and AC Milan.
Brighton have started a recruitment process to replace Brett, but an appointment is not imminent, TGG understands. Brett has continued lecturing on the Football Association’s Advanced Trauma Medical Management in Football (ATMMiF) course since leaving Brighton.
